god is with us | merry christmas


emmanuel!
god with us. heaven's hallelujah.

HOPE is here, his name is jesus.
because of god's great love for us, he sent his only son, jesus. god's love is stronger and bigger than all our sin. his love doesn't depend on us at all. that's grace. that's freedom. that's christmas. 

"in this the love of god was made manifest among us, that god sent his only son into the world, so that we might live through him." 1 john 4:9







god with us, from a sermon charles spurgeon preached on christmas eve, 1854

    1. hi, yolanda! thanks so much.
      i most often read from the english standard version.
      i have life application study bibles(in the new american standard & in new living translation) that i love!
      sometimes i read psalms and proverbs from the message, always a fresh punch from that paraphrase version :)
