Our text for today is about Jesus being called Immanuel, meaning God with us. There is no greater love, Jesus said, than that one would lay down his life for a friend. In the condescension of Christ to our earth, to become human for all eternity in order that he might reconcile all things to the Trinity, here is a love beyond our understanding. God so loved that he gave. In this season of gift giving, we can grasp a small piece of the reality that love gives. How can we become more the hands and feet of Jesus so that the Holy Spirit might be God with our world today? How can we practice love as servants of all who we meet?
