“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14 (NIV)
Our Savior wasn’t just a visitor to us or made similar like us, but the Messiah was born with us into humanity. The Messiah would not be a mere fellow mortal who jumped at the opportunity to be elevated to a higher position among peers. The only God-Man, Jesus Christ, is unlike any deity conjured up in the mind of men.
Our Lord and only true God, known by no other name, became Immanuel, God with Us. Which is why He is called by the Gospel writers, both the Son of God and the Son of Man, because He is with us as both God and man and that makes Him our Savior.
Let’s pray today that we may not forgot that our Lord has walked our experience and knows us.
