People are designed for personal presence. First and foremost, we are created for God’s presence, but sin has kept us from him. Jesus is the Immanuel, “God with us,” came so that we could be with God.
Advent is the time when millions of Christians gather to celebrate the birth of the Savior of the World. It is a time to reflect on what it means that Jesus fulfilled several of the Old Testament prophecies about the coming Messiah at His birth. Christmas is a time to celebrate A Promise Fulfilled by God through the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ, that brings hope, peace and joy to the world.
