Verse of the Day:   Matthew 1:23      

The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel which means “God with us”.        

The prophecy by Isaiah, which was inspired by God, revealed the birth of Jesus by a virgin and that they would call Him Emmanuel, which means God with us. The Gospel of Matthew interprets this as the birth of the Messiah and the fulfillment of scripture in the birth of Jesus when the word that was made flesh and dwelt among us. This was all part of God’s divine plan for the salvation of man, and the restoration of fellowship between God and man because Jesus is the one and only Mediator between God and us. How wonderful to know that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to dwell with us and that He will always be with us even unto the end of the world.
