Christ with us, for us, and in us.

He came. God with us, “Immanuel”.

Matthew 1:23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).

He humbled Himself and came and dwelt among men.

John 1:9-14 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

He came to die for us—sinless and innocent of any wrongdoing. Christ died in our place, took our punishment as our Redeemer and Substitute, that through repentance and faith in Him we must be freed from bondage to sin, and have eternal life.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.

Colossians 1:23b, 25-27 This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant…………I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness—the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Christ with us, for us, and in us.

We cannot earn it. We do not deserve it. There is nothing we can do to make God love us more, nor anything we can do to make Him love us less. It is all through God’s amazing grace, to His glory; and we receive it all freely by faith in Jesus Christ.
