When We Could Not Get To God

Dec 1, 2021

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

Our sin prevents nearness to God because it separates us from Him with no possible way from our side to get to Him.  This is why Jesus came to live, die and rise…  So you and I can draw near to God.  We who are trusting in Jesus for forgiveness of and freedom from sin need no longer be distant from real peace, real hope, real joy, real comfort, real security, real wisdom and real love because we are no longer distant from God Whose presence and provision give us these things. Let us look to Him for all of this, knowing this:  Our Immanuel made a way for us to get forgiven, get real life, get to heaven and get to God. When we could not get to Him, He came to us.
