The Celebration of Emmanuel


As Christmas has approached this year, not only have I been mindful of the coming of Emmanuel, but why He chose to come and dwell with us. We celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas, and the Resurrection at Easter, but the two cannot be separated, because He came to redeem us. He intended to offer this costly sacrifice before the foundation of the world itself.

So as we marvel at the wonder of God with us, clothed in frail human flesh, let us also celebrate with awe the redemption which He purposed to pay. What greater reason do we have to rejoice?

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

Merry Christmas!

      Thanks, Jamie! It was a lovely Christmas, full of family time–but it went by so fast. It’s funny how that works. 🙂

      I hope you enjoyed your Christmas as well!
