The Word Made His Dwelling Among Us
How do children come to know their parents’ love? There are signs. How does a wife know that her husband loves her? There are signs. How do any of us know that we are loved by another? There are signs. So, too, God wanted to give people a sign of His love. We read in Isaiah 7:14: “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call Him Immanuel.” In our worship today we are reminded of how God sent His Son, born of the Virgin Mary, as fulfillment of prophecy and a sign of His love for us.
