What I like about Christmas...

What I like about Christmas is Jesus was Immanuel - which means "God with us."

Later on Jesus would teach His disciples that He would be leaving them.  While this may seem like a bad thing to His disciples, Jesus insisted it was actually for good.  The reason it was good is that after Jesus leaves He would then send them a Helper.

We know that Helper as the Holy Spirit.

Can you catch the beauty of this?  We move from "God with us" to "God IN us."

If you are a Christian, you are never truly alone.

I love Christmas because it was through Christ coming as Immanuel that we can now experience His love, joy and peace in us.

Isn't that cool?!?!
