"The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel" (which means 'God with us')." (Matthew 1:23 NIV)
we could condense all the truths of Christmas into only three words, these would
be the words: "God with us." We tend to focus our attention at
Christmas on the infancy of Christ. The greater truth of the holiday is His
deity. More astonishing than a baby in the manger is the truth that this
promised baby is the omnipotent Creator of the heavens and the earth!
