An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel,’ which means “God is with us.” Mt 1:18-25
Saved from our sins. God with us. What beautiful words, beloved! God cares so much for His creation that He would come to be with us and save us – as proof in the coming of His ‘only begotten Son,’ Jesus. Ever feel down or lonely, beloved. Just remember God is with us, always. Then, cheer up. For you are loved beyond comprehension.
