God With Us

Faith in Jesus generates hope. Hope is not a fatalistic “what happens happens” attitude. Hope looks forward and expects God who is good will show up.  Hope is with us when we look forward and wonder how one child could change the world.

Mary was pregnant. Miraculously. And here’s how they understood that bit of history:

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).  Matthew 1:22-23

Jesus is our hope. He is Immanuel. He is “God with us.”

You may wonder if you have reasons for hope.

If you have Jesus, you have at least one:

God with us.

Immanuel.
