With Us

 

 He is with us
He will save us

He won’t leave us
on our own.

He will save us
He is with us

stopping at nothing
to bring us home.

You establish an intimate relationship with us.

“This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Soirit. Joseph, her fiancée, was a good man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement quietly.”

“As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. ‘Joseph, son of David,’ the angel said, ‘do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. And she will have a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

“All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:

‘Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call Him Immannuel,
which means “God is with us’ “

Matthew 1:18-23

A Father’s Cry

“Suddenly a man from the multitude cried out, saying, ‘Teacher, I implore You, look at my son, for he is my only child’.” Luke 9:38

I hear The Father in this father’s cry:
“look at my son” . . .”Hear Him” (Luke 9:35)
“for he is my only child” . . .”This is my Beloved Son.” (Luke 9:35)

Oh Lord, thank You for relating to us through a Father/Son/Child relationship. Though we be frail, human and sinful, surely this must bring us to our knees as we look upon our own children and hold them close. And here’s a simple poem . . .

More Children

Jesus, My Begotten Son
Holy, pure, divine,
Oh, how I love You
I’m so proud You are Mine.

Though I gave You up to suffer
for their sins and pain,
the cross was not the end and
Your sacrifice was not in vain.

Now You reign with Me forever
as The Way, The Truth, The Life
bringing Me beloved sons and daughters
in whom I take delight.
