Forever God is with You
From the beginning of time, God desired relationship with you. Before Adam and Eve sinned, they walked with God in the garden (Genesis 3:8-9). Imagine what that might have been like. They experienced God in a tangible way.
Watch for this—a virgin will get pregnant and bear a son; They will name him Immanuel (Hebrew for “God is with us”).
─ Matthew 1:23 MSG
All knowing God looked forward in our time and knew that mankind would choose to go his own way. So, He set a plan in motion to restore you to Him even before He formed the worlds.
Choose to live for Christ and receive all God has to offer.
Throughout the Old Testament, prophets declared God’s purpose – to bring you back into relationship with Him, as His child. And in our verse today, the promise was fulfilled – “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”) (NIV).
When you choose to live for Christ, you receive all God has to offer. He is forever with you because Jesus chose to be born of a virgin and grow up as a man to give His life in exchange for yours.
