One of the names Jesus is called is ‘Immanuel’ [Isaiah 7.14] which means ‘God with us’. Christmas can be viewed as the turning point in history. Shortly after creation mankind turned our back on God and decided to pursue our own path, bringing distance between us and God. We are reminded that after priests and prophets and temples, which all brought us closer to God, Jesus was the sign that relationship has been established again.
We once again have the opportunity to meet God face to face and walk with God once more.
