He is here...

"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" --which means, "God with us." - Matthew 1:23

This verse is truly at the heart of this season.  The name Immanuel reflects the fact that God is Here, with us.  Jesus is here.  Sunday night, our choirs and instrumentalists were able to deliver that message, "He is Here", with music and praise.  I hope that you had a chance to enjoy the program and experience the joy that went into that performance.  Personally, programs like those seem to let me know that Christmas really is here.

What I hope didn't get lost in the program was the simple message of the title, "He is Here."  Just as His name indicates, He is God with us.  Know that God the Father sent His only Son to be with us and save us by actually being WITH us.  He is not some distant God that does not care, that requires a great deal from us.  He is a God that came to this earth in the form of Jesus and walked side by side with lowly humans.  To this day God is among us in the form of the Holy Spirit.  God is HERE even now.  Let Him know, today, right now, how much you appreciate a God that cares and loves you that much.

In Christ, 

Bro. Grant
