“With” is a wily word.

It can mean “in the presence of,” as in “My dog is with me in the living room.”

It can mean “because of,” as in “My cheeks were red with embarrassment.”

It can mean “on the same side,” as in “We are with you through thick or thin.”It can mean “against,” as in “The Allied forces were at war with the Axis powers.”

So when the book of Matthew tells us that Jesus shall be called Immanuel, God with us… what does it mean? How is God with us?

I am so excited for our amazing Gracekidz and the inspired words of Matthew to lead us this week!

See you Sunday as we step into the second week of our Advent series, God with Us.
