Advent is all about God coming to live with us. Eugene Peterson translates John 1:14 in this way, “The Word (Jesus) became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” What an awesome thing! Have you ever thought of Jesus that way? Not just that Jesus came to be born 2000 years ago in Bethlehem, but that Jesus is STILL actively living in your neighborhood today!
Jesus said, I will be with you ALWAYS! That means right here, right now! It means that wherever you are and whatever struggle it is that you are going through, Jesus is there to guide, encourage and even forgive you.
One of Jesus’ names is Immanuel, “God with us.” Our Father God sent His Son to be with us. Wow! Never forget that you have a God who will never leave you or forsake you! Jesus loves you dearly! This Advent season, tap into the power of Jesus' Love!
Alive in Christ!
