Advent 2016 – Pondering Emmanuel – Day Thirteen: He Is Faithful

This post has been contributed by Jenny. Who has answered the call to serve in India, sharing the hope of Jesus to those that the Lord has placed around her. I know you will enjoy her reflections. I certainly am! He Is Faithful It was by faith a young girl from Galilee could sing her heart out in praise to the Father after receiving the most terrifying, yet greatest news of all time. She, a virgin, was to give birth to the long-awaited Emmanuel (Luke 1:30-33). For the people of Israel, the birth of Jesus meant the wait was finally over. God the Father had given them the promised Savior –He was now with them. About two years ago, in a hot and muggy hotel room in Agra, God told me He was going to bring me back to this country. I wish I could say I was overflowed with joy and obeyed immediately; but unfortunately, that was not the case. For a while there, I wrestled with how India could possibly be part of “The Plan” –or what I perceived to be God’s plan for my life. I was scared....

Advent 2016 – Pondering Emmanuel – Day Twelve: God With Us

This post was written and contributed by Emily Zanke. God With Us Immanuel, God with us, is one of my favorite names for Jesus. I became a believer when I was fifteen years old after hearing the Gospel for the first time. Up until that time I was unaware of a beautiful Creator let alone one that would go so far as to send His only son to come down to me, to die for me just to have a beautiful relationship with me. As many of us know, life didn't magically get better, but life never looked the same either. Through life's course He has continued to be the hope my heart can hang on and through relationship of being with me He has given me deeper freedom from any deep valley. Gazing over my life’s past eleven years, I realize many major meaningful milestones where Jesus’ faithfulness has been overwhelmingly evident. I can look back over the past eleven years of Jesus being with me and recount His faithfulness in these major milestones in my little life. Orphaned in South Korea as an i...

Advent 2016 – Pondering Emmanuel – Day Nine: Taking Time To Think

“ Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel (which means, God with us)” Matthew 1:22 Immanuel. God with us. What a praise-worthy truth. In the hustle and bustle of December, everything is oriented around Christmas. Trying to get work done before the holidays, arranging the “right” decorations, attending all the holiday parties, Christmas cards…you name it. Over the past few years, Christmas seems to have lost is “shine” for me, and I have found myself wondering why Christmas didn’t feel the same…it just didn’t feel “magical” like it used to. At the end of the day, time seems to escape me and on Christmas day I try to muster up excitement for Christ’s birthday celebration. But this year is different--Simply because I am taking the time to think. To actually think about what it means that God. is. with. us. Christmas is a time where this truth is put on display and we have the opportunity to rejoice at his coming. He has come!...
