God's Gift

Day 5 of 9 • This day’s reading


God’s Gift gives me His presence.

On the very first Christmas, Jesus left His place in Heaven with God, His Father. He chose to live with people as a human and be a gift to us. That’s why He’s called Immanuel, which means, God is with us. Jesus died on the cross for our sins, rose again, and returned to live in Heaven with His Father, God. But that doesn’t mean He stopped being Immanuel! When you choose to follow Jesus, He’s your Immanuel because He lives in you and fills you with the incredible gift of God’s powerful presence!
