The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).Matthew 1:23
The atmosphere is rapidly changing, the celebration of the birth of our Saviour fills the air. Many are in a frenzy, preparing for this huge occasion but, we need to understand the reason for this season and how it implies to our lives.
The reason God came in the form of a man into the world is to redeem us from the bondage of sin. This is the center of the Christian experience, hence the above passage, God with us. He dwelt among us because of the great love He has for us, that we should come to repentance and be free from the hold of Satan.
If not for the presence of God in our personal lives and families, it is inexplicable the disaster satan could have done against us. In our daily endeavours, God is with us, though we may not see Him physically, but we can see His hands in all we do and feel His presence all around us.
It is great to be excited about this season but, it is greatly important to really take out time to brainstorm over the fact that, God through His Spirit is dwelling in our lives. Do you recognize His presence in you? Are you making any effort to ensure you develop and maintain a closer relationship with God? If the president of your country decides to dwell in your house, would you still live your life as you do right now? If such an honour can be granted to a mere president, how about The Great God?
If you haven’t established a relationship with God, this is an opportunity for you to do so. God has been knocking at the door of your heart, please let Him in.
