God with us

Advent 4, Yr A
A prophecy spoken to a fearful king 800 hundred years previous now speaks a word of more glorious hope to a world in greater danger. The child born in Isaiah’s time would signal God’s presence with and rescue of his people from great physical danger. The baby born centuries later to a virgin was named ‘Jesus’ because he would save his people from their sins. As we celebrate the Saviour’s birth this year, let’s say to ourselves: “Immanuel – God was with us, God is with is, God will be with us in 2020 and always.”
