Closer Than You Think

Hook: When was the last time you wondered whether God really cared about your life or troubles? Why do you tend to feel so insignificant at times?

Book: No person is trivial to God. The meaning of Immanuel contains three small but powerful words: God with us!

            God: Jesus is the Father’s Son.

            With: He came to live on earth.

            Us: He came for you and for everyone who ever lives.

These three words reflect the lifestyle and teaching of Jesus, who invested His life in anyone who accepted Him. Just the anticipation of this truth stirred instant and complete obedience in Joseph.

Took: How does believing that Jesus is Immanuel, God with us, bring significance and motivation to your life?
