God With Us

Jesus has multiple names. One of His central names is Emmanuel. The Father named Jesus to reveal His promises to us. The name Emmanuel means God with us. Jesus can tell us, I am Emmanuel. I am God with us, God with man, God with His people.

         As long as you have Jesus, you have God with you. This is an immense revelation. Not only is Jesus our Savior, the One who saves us from our sins, saving us from the wrath of God, but He is Himself God and abides with us. God abides with you. The truth of being in Jesus Emmanuel is the cause of great assurance. God is with us. God is with you. The God of all creation, the God of salvation, the God of propitiation, the God of glorification is with us.
