Sharing Our Stories On The Journey Of Faith – Advent Day 19

“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.  All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:  The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel (which means God with us).” – Matthew 1:21-23

Pic 6God is telling Mary, ‘You will have a kid and he will be called Jesus.’  It makes me feel happy.

What I believe this passage speaks to me and says Jesus shall be in the virgin Mary, will be judged and ridiculed about this child being in her and not being wed.

It is a good scripture, not a bad one. It seems interesting.

God sent Jesus to the world to sacrifice him in order to take everyone’s sins away, so everyone is nicer in the future.

Dear God,  Thank you for all our friends and for sending Jesus down to earth to sacrifice and take away our sins.  Amen.
