Emmanuel--God With Us
Lots of Operation Christmas Child questions swirl in my head on this Christmas Eve morning but I'm trying to put them aside for awhile.
I've been staring at the lighted Christmas tree, pondering what it meant for Jesus to become Emmanuel--God with us.
Are you having family problems this Christmas? -- Jesus knows about that. His family thought He was insane.
Are you having leadership problems this Christmas? -- Jesus knows about that. His team of twelve had a hard time following Him. They often didn't understand the crucial concepts He tried to teach them and in His hour of greatest need they abandoned Him.
Are you having financial problems this Christmas? -- Jesus knows about that. He didn't have worldly wealth, didn't have a home, didn't have a budget for His ministry. Yet He understood the sufficiency of full dependence on the Father.
He always had enough.
