Matthew 1:21-23 " And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."
Because of that first Christmas, the child of God is recipient of three great assurances that provide comfort and strength throughout our life.
God's Own Son
As Mary rocks her baby boy she’s filled with sadness, filled with joy.
She looks upon that tiny face and sees the hope of every race.
Her heart is filled with a mother's glow; and she never wants to let Him go. She'll see Him run and laugh and play and longs to keep Him safe each day. His life won't be an easy one, His destiny hard, as God's own Son. Mary sees the miracles He'll perform, the lepers healed and free from scorn. The lame will walk, the blind will see. She sees His love will set us free. And then she sees Him on a cross. She feels His pain and feels our loss. She knows His life must come to this. She sheds a tear and gives a kiss. His life won't be an easy one, His destiny hard, as God's own Son. So as Christmas time draws near and we are all so "busy" here, with shopping, baking, trees of green Lets ask, what does this really mean? Let's take a moment from the fuss and think of all their gifts to us. A mother's love, a baby boy, Peace and comfort, love and joy. He was born for everyone.
Chuck Swindoll in "The Grace Awakening" wrote this:
If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent us an educator.
If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist.
If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist.
If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer.
But our greatest need was forgiveness, So God sent us a Savior!

Matthew 1:23 “…and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
A. Always
B. Matthew 28:20 “… and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world…”
C. Forever
D. Deuteronomy 31:8 “And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.”
E. Death
F. Psalm 3:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
G. Hebrews 13:5 “…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
A newspaper held a competition to find out how people would describe friendship. The winning answer was, “A friend is someone who’s walking in when everyone else is walking out.”
You and I have a friend that will do that, a friend who will stick closer than a brother. Jesus.
Sam Walton was in the mid 90’s named as one of the richest men in America. You’d never know it! He drove a pickup and lived like a regular person. Asked why he didn’t drive a Rolls Royce he replied, “Where would I put my dogs?” He was successful at least in part because he connected with the common man.
That’s why Jesus came as a man to earth. God with us. To connect with the common man - because he is an uncommon God.

Colossians 1:27 “… which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
The Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of His Son, is in us to seal us until the day of redemption;
A. To guide
B. To comfort
C. To teach and empower us for Christian service.
Next time you’re in an airport notice the difference between passengers who have confirmed tickets and those on standby. Those who have confirmed tickets are relaxed, their confident and expectant. Those on standby hang around the ticket counter, they pace and smoke, pace and smoke, pace and smoke…all because of uncertainty. God offers us freedom from the burden of uncertainty, so we can know for sure where we stand with God.
1 John 5:13 “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”

Romans 8:31-32 “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
Napoleon was a great general...but an extremely poor theologian! His declaration that "God is on the side of the army with the largest battalions" is false.
Who then is God for?
We are to be reminded that the wonderful promise of Romans 8:31 follows that great passage of Romans 8:28-30 which clearly sets forth that "all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."
The "called according to His purpose are further characterized: “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” Romans 8:29-30
The dedicated Christian who walks daily in the will of God can take courage in knowing that: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD." Isaiah 54:17
Billy Graham, the great evangelist, tells of driving through a small southern town and being stopped by a policeman and being charged with speeding. Graham admitted his quilt, but was told by the officer that he would have to appear in court. The judge asked, "Guilty, or not guilty?" When Graham pleaded guilty, the judge replied, "That’ll be ten dollars -- a dollar for every mile you went over the limit." Suddenly the judge recognized the famous minister. "You have violated the law," he said. "The fine must be paid--but I am going to pay it for you." The judge took a ten dollar bill from his own wallet, attached it to the ticket, and then took Graham out and bought him a steak dinner! And Billy Graham used that illustration in his sermons to explain God’s grace. That is how God treats us as repentant sinners! He paid for our sins with his son and now we get to dine with him in heaven.
