So blessed you could join us today. I'm delighted to be your hostess!
His name is Immanuel, "our God with us". The name is a promise, as He is the promise. It describles what He means, or what He can mean. He is with us, His is for us. He is Immanuel. He is our God. Long before His first coming it was nonetheless still His name. (Micheal Card)
Father, how can we ever thank you enough for this precious promise? Thank you for never leaving us, nor forsaking us through every circumstance we have faced or will ever face. Because of this great promise we will never be alone. You walk with us, you are there by our side, you dry ever tear from our eyes. You rejoice with us and sing over us. Make your self fully know to us O Immanuel!
