And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.—Matthew 1:21-23
"He shall save his people from their sins."
Those are eight very precious words.
Words of deliverance.
Words of compassion.
Words of freedom.
Words of love.
What does the name of Jesus mean to you?
Does it bring to mind compassionate and loving deliverance?
