Words for the Week: God with 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.—Matthew 1:23

You know what Emmanuel means—“God with us.” But do you know what “God with us” means?

  • It means you do not face today alone. In fact, it means you face nothing alone.
  • It means the everlasting God condescends to be with you.
  • It means God is present—whether you feel His presence or not.
  • It means God expresses His grace to you.
  • It means God loves you and wants to be with you.
  • It means all the promises of God are yours to claim today.

In short, it means…everything!

God with us—who or what else do we need?!
