Immanuel, God is with us. Not a god high above heavens watching dispassionately as humanity struggles with violence and injustice. Not a graven image - the work of human imagination and craftsmanship. But a God beyond human understanding who freely enters the history of his Creation to redeem his people - to bring them to the glory of life in eternity.
What hope does Immanuel offer you - in your own life - and in the life of the world?
O Immanuel, you are our king and judge, the One whom the peoples await and their Saviour. O come and save us, Lord our God.
