Our glorious Savior has many wonderful, awesome, beautiful names! In my blog on this blessed Christmas Day, I want to focus on one of His names, Immanuel.

When the divine Child was born that holy night over two thousand years ago, God came to live with us. His name, Immanuel, means, “God with us”. Oh, what joy to know that God incarnate had come to earth in the form of a tiny baby, born of a virgin! His coming demonstrated the lavish love of God in sending His Only Son to be the Savior for all the world. Today we still rejoice with the angel who announced, “For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11

As a tribute to Jesus, our Lord and Savior, I created an acronym for His name, Immanuel:

I Invincible – He is unconquerable; all things are subject to Him, and He overcomes everything!

M Mighty – He is all powerful, and the source of all strength!

M Maker – He is the One who made us, and He was in the beginning creating the heavens and the earth!

A Advocate – He represents us before the Father; without His righteousness we cannot stand before a Holy God!

N Near – He is always in our midst; there is nowhere in all the universe where we can escape His presence!

U Unique – He is the self-existent One; there is no one comparable to Him from eternity past or present!

E Exalted – He alone is to be worshiped, praised, and adored. All glory belongs to Him!

L Love – He is pure love; He manifested His unconditional love by giving His life on the cross so that we could live with Him forever!

Meditate on the greatness of our King! IMMANUEL, He is worthy to be praised!!

Merry Christmas!!!
