30 Days with Jesus Day 2

Read Matthew 1:18-25

The Birth of Jesus

Matthew1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

God with us? That's pretty personal Dont ya think? Christ let Heaven to be with us. Here is the big difference between a relationship and a religion. This is what is so different about Christianity. Our savior isn't dead, waiting to be reincarnated or a distant ruler. Christ wants a personal relationship with you. He came to earth to experience life. A life of hunger, disappointment, pain, loneliness- just like us. God chose to reveal Himself through His son. His presence comforts us, encourages, strengthens, protects, guides, provides and heals. Are you personal with God? Do you take Him up on his offer? Are you spending time with Him? In prayer? In thankfulness?Reading His love letter to you- the Bible?
