The Gift of Presence

The Gift of Presence

God gave the gift of His presence to the world in Jesus, Immanuel (“God with us”). Jesus gave His Spirit to live within us. Just as God sent Jesus, He also sends us to reflect His unconditional love, grace, forgiveness, and encouragement to others. Where has God sent you? Are there people in your life who need to experience God’s life-giving presence? How will you reflect His presence to them today?

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). –Matthew 1:22-23

Prayer: God, thank You for sending Jesus, Immanuel, to bring us into Your presence. Jesus, thank You for reflecting God’s love, grace, forgiveness, and encouragement into a dark world. Thank You for shining the light of God’s life and love into my heart. Let me carry Your presence to others as I lead like You. In Your name I pray, amen.
