If God is with you and me, what does that mean for the people we spend time with every day?
Mat 1:22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us). (ESV)
John 17: 23 I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. (ESV)
Every day you go to work, and you spend time amongst your colleagues – many of whom do not know God, and have very limited and probably profoundly erroneous ideas of who He is and what He is like. I do not claim that we have it all figured out, but as Christians we know that Jesus sent us the Holy Spirit, and that now God is with us. Immanuel – God with us – as the Spirit of Christ dwells within us.
The question then is this. If God is in you and with you, are you living in a way that that through you, God is also with them?
