Good morning.


Matthew confirms Isaiah's prophesy when he says, "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 1:22‭-‬23)


As followers of Christ we are so privileged to have God with us and living is us.


Jesus, the King of Kings, arrived as a humble servant. Humility is not thinking we are less. To be humble doesn’t mean we have to be weak. God has given us all we need to live confidently as His. The proud will never truly lift up God’s name in praise. Yet He raises the humble to new heights.


Humility is the byproduct of being with Jesus. Anyone who walks intimately with Him will not think more highly of himself than he should. To be loved by Jesus and invited into a relationship with Him, is all we need to right-size ourselves and to assume His gentleness and grace.


Immanuel God with us, makes this possible. Peter reminds us that "His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness." (2 Peter 1:3)


Today we have the privilege and honour to let His humility and love shine through us.


Have a good day.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
