You Are Not Alone!
Everywhere, festive lights illuminate the streets, the fragrance of pine and cinnamon fills the air, and for several weeks, Christmas carols have returned to the radio. Each of these carols seems more beautiful than the last, and this week, we’d like to (re)discover these lyrics that magnify the person of Jesus, our Savior.
Perhaps you know these verses:
“O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel”
In the Bible, many names are given to Jesus. Here are a few of them:
- Lamb of God
- Alpha and Omega
- Good Shepherd
- Almighty God
- Morning Star
- Son of God
- Lion of Judah
- Light of the world
- Word of life
- Prince of Peace
- King of Kings
- Lord of Lords
Jesus also bears the beautiful name “Emmanuel”: ““The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).” (the Bible, Matthew 1:23, NIV)
What an unfathomable mystery, what infinite grace! Through Jesus, God is with us! He ransoms us, delivers us from everything holding us captive. He destroys the dominions that attempt to keep us pinned to the ground. Our lives, unified with Emmanuel, are no longer lives of loneliness! We are not alone and never will be because He is with us, every day, until the end of the world.
Whatever worries may await you today, Jesus is there, and nothing and no one could ever separate you from His love! Cast your cares on Him, and you will see how He takes care of you.
