"Immanuel" - Day 39 Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him IMMANUEL.

Throughout the Bible we see God's characteristics and emotions. We see His creativity as He creates the universe and all its natural beauty. We see God's sadness when Adam and Eve sin. We see His might when He brings the Israelites out of Egypt. We see His anger when evil kings led Israel astray. We see His compassion as He forgives them again and again. And we see all the same things in Jesus - Immanuel, God with us. Jesus showed his creativity in the different ways he healed the blind. He showed his sadness when he wept over Lazarus. We see his might when he fed the masses. We see his anger when he clears the temple. We see his compassion when he forgave those who put him on the cross as he died. Jesus was God with us as a perfect human being, Immanuel, to save the people from their sins - thanks be to God!
