God's promise

God had repeatedly promised it. Men, women, and angels had long anticipated it. Now, in Jesus, it happens. God is with us. Jesus is Immanuel. We live on a visited planet, touched by the very presence of God among us. And it was just as the prophets of old had said.

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" --which means, "God with us."

— Matthew 1:22-23

Dear LORD, thank you for keeping your promises, especially when it was so incredibly costly for you to do so. We want to know you better, O God, not just as someone we study, but as someone we encounter in our daily life. Please make your presence known as we seek you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
