Day 21 - The Arrival: The Birth of our Savior.
Matthew 1:23 - See, the virgin will become pregnant
and give birth to a son, and they will name him
Immanuel, which is translated “God is with us.”
Philippians 2:6-8 - who, existing in the form of God,
did not consider equality with God as something to be
exploited. (7) Instead he emptied himself by assuming
the form of a servant, taking on the likeness of
humanity. And when he had come as a man, (8) he
humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of
death—even to death on a cross.
God invaded planet Earth personally, wow. Literally, when Jesus was conceived He
was a wholly human baby, (Mary’s side), and totally Divine too, (Holy Spirit’s power), at
the same time. Imagine it, He was totally unique. He’s the only person who has this dual
nature and His prophesied name foreshadowed His coming. And they named Him
Immanuel, which is translated “God is with us”!
Christmas reveals the baby whose birth we celebrate came on a mission to save us.
