Read Matthew 1 v 18-23

Matthew 1 v 23, “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will come him Emmanuel, which means God is with us.”

God is with us! This is the promise of Advent! In your darkest moments, in the middle of the storm, when all seems lost, God is with you. If the Christmas season is one of joy or one of pain for you, then remember God is with you! The Christian message is that God is not distant or absent or passive, but God is near; God is close. He is closer than your own breath on a cold winter’s morning, God is with you. He hears your heartcry and your deepest pain; He rejoices in your best day and mourns with you on your worst. Whatever you are facing right now remember, God is with you!

This week join us in praying for:

  • The General Election
  • This Sunday at Life Church when Life Kids are involved.
  • The Life Kids Christmas Crafty party on Thursday 12th December

Advent Challenge GOD IS WITH US! How can we demonstrate God’s goodness and closeness to others? How can we help other people know that God is with them?
