Advent With Tearfund

Devotional

God With Us

On the first day of Advent we celebrate the reason for this joyous season.

The Old Testament foretells the miraculous wonder of Jesus’ birth: “and he will be called Immanuel.” The Hebrew name Immanuel translates to God with us

Jesus is not only the God who saves us but the God who is with us. He walked the earth as a man and understands every aspect of life we face. The trials, the victories, the ups the downs and everything in between. Whatever you are facing today, you have a savior who understands, you have Immanuel, God with us. 

Together, let us pray as we look expectantly towards the Christmas season ahead.
