All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The Virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son and they will call Him Immanuel” – which means “God with us.” – Matthew 1:22-23
The birth of Jesus was no accident. His presence was cause for celebration, and He is with us to this day in the form of the Holy Spirit.
When my toddler comes into a room, it is very clear he is there. He makes an impression, and he has a lot to say.
I’m sure that Baby Jesus made a big impact on those around him, even at a very young age. His existence was a miracle. The precious gift of our Lord and Savior in this world makes our lives brighter and full of meaning.
We are blessed to have a Savior who is so close to us. Amen.
