In the latest edition of our Immanuel devotional, Lorna Wilkinson has thrown us a ‘curve ball’ as we come to the letter ‘U’, which, in this instance, is for YOU 🙋🏿‍♀️🙋🏼‍♂️:
“… the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Colossians 1:26-27  
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
Jesus came to earth to save us from our sins and provided the only way for humanity to be reconciled to God. Today, He dwells among those who follow Him by the power of the Holy Spirit, until the day we go to be with Him. This is a key element of the Christmas story, revealed to those who recognise who He is. Don’t miss the treasure in the midst of lights and tinsel! ⭐️✝️
Jesus said to Nicodemus, “You must be born again.” (John 3:7)
“… to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God…” John 1:12.
For those in Christ, who have repented of their sins and placed their faith in Him alone for salvation, we possess a sure and certain hope for now and eternity, as God’s Spirit dwells in us. It is the living, lasting and lovely hope of eternal glory 🌇🙌🏻
Despite all the unsettling events in our world, we have a certain future when we are trusting in Christ. Are you doing that today?

“One still night, Mary awoke
Stirred by an angel, she trembled as he spoke
One small child would soon be born
The King of kings will wear a crown of thorns
“Glory to God,” the angels sang
“Immanuel was born for you this day
Peace on earth, good will toward men
Immanuel has come to Bethlehem
Immanuel has come to Bethlehem”

One still night, while Joseph dreamed
He saw a vision within his troubled sleep
One small child, his bride would give
Deliverer delivered to save us from our sin
And to His kingdom there’ll be no end
And to His kingdom there’ll be no end
And to His kingdom there’ll be no end

One still night, a light was shown
That all the darkness could never overcome”
