Rejoice…

This is worth the full quote:

“The golden name, Immanuel, is inexpressibly delightful. It is a word fit for the lips of cherubim for its majesty, but, because of its marvelous condescension, none but men can utter it. He is not so with seraphs as He is with us, Immanuel, “God with us” – in our nature, in our sorrow, in our life work, in our punishment, in our grave, and now with us, or rather, we with Him, in resurrection, ascension, triumph, and Second Advent splendor. The babe of Bethlehem appears to be manifestly with us in weakness and in poverty. Let us not forget that He is equally with us in His gory and honor. Faith clasps the child, and love kisses Him with the kisses of her lips. Oh, for true spiritual fellowship with Immanuel all this day!” – Charles Haddon Spurgeon

May this day be filled with joy and celebration that our Savior has come! Merry Christmas!
