“This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. Joseph, her fiancé, was a good man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement quietly.
“As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. ‘Joseph, son of David,’ the angel said, ‘do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’
“All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet: ‘Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.'” (Matthew 1:18-23 NLT)
“Jehovah God, the Father of all creation, of all life, being the very source and essence of love was motivated by such to reconcile the sins of all mankind through the singular source capable of bringing closure to the scheme of darkness. The Messiah, Immanuel, God with us, came into the world, lived among us sinless, took our failures upon Himself to the cross for our deliverance. Through His death and resurrection He restored the possibility of God’s divinely desired relationship for all who would believe and receive God’s only Son. This is the gift of grace.
“So the Word became human and made His home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.” (John 1:14 NLT)
