EMMANUEL , God with us .

In the Bible, Jesus has many names that
identify His character. One of those names
is Emmanuel, which means “God with us.”
Before Jesus came to earth, the Spirit of
God resided in the temple. The people had
to go through all sorts of rituals to become
clean enough to go near Him. Now, as
believers, we are the temple of the Holy
Spirit. When we accept Jesus as our Lord
and Savior, He is the one who cleanses us
and actually makes His home in our hearts.
Isn’t it good to know that God is with us?
He is closer than the very air that we
breathe. His peace is always with us. His
joy is always with us. His power is always
with us, and His victory is always with us.
The next time you feel alone, remember,
you serve Emmanuel — the God who is
always with you!
