As we come to the last week of advent we about to ponder how Emanuel is Among us.
“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a
son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being
interpreted is, God with us.”
This what make us very different from other modern religions, because we believe God became man. So he could for us, what we could not going back to father Abraham. God sacrifices his sinless son for all of humanity sins. Jesus would grew up and become a man of his time, but after his Baptist’s from his cousin John would he discover what his beloved Mother was telling by him for years. He knew he was different from other children, but he would not stop searching. He would become a Shepherd and he would offer hims of for our sins. Yet at this moment in the church year ,we are ponder what a great God and how he love us so he gave his only begotten son. There is and never will be anyone else like Lord Jesus. When you with your family and opening presents, the the birth of Lord Jesus was probably June 18 5 bc. So if you can get your but in the pew this Sunday and ever Sunday to show God his proper due and respect. Jesus love you and you only have be devotion and repent from our sinful ways. Being a christian is like long process and dose not happen over night. It take a life time. Join me on this journey of following Lord Jesus. Open you heart and remember Christmas is more then a day, it is whole church season. We have four weeks of it.
From a Wikipedia
In the denominations of Western Christianity, the term “Christmas season” is considered synonymous with Christmastide, which runs from December 25 (Christmas Day) to January 5 (Epiphany Eve), popularly known as the 12 Days of Christmas. However, as the economic impact involving the anticipatory lead-up to Christmas Day grew in America and Europe into the 19th and 20th centuries, the term “Christmas season” began to become synonymous instead with the traditional Christian Advent season, the period observed in Western Christianity from the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day until Christmas Day itself.
