The Christmas Names of Jesus – Jesus

This Christmas, in the midst of Christmas, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, I hope we remember that Jesus didn’t come to save a nation from human bondage, but to save a race from sin’s captivity, a promise wrapped up in His name.

The Christmas Names of Jesus – Immanuel

Immanuel, born into a manger in a stable because there was no room in the inn. Heralded by hundreds of years of prophecy, all so that God could fulfil the promise of Immanuel, God with us.
