Season: 8 Episode: 107
Albert and Shanda take on the meaning of Immanuel, God with us. This is a theological concept we must understand in order to truly celebrate the birth of Christ at Christmas. You will be encouraged and prepared to share with others why Christianity is different from all other religions
“Christianity is the only religion where God came to man. Every other religion is man striving to reach God.”

What does Immanuel mean?
Christianity is the only religion where God came to man. Why did God need to come to man? Why couldn’t we have earned our way to God?
John 1:14-18, “The Word become flesh and dwelt among us.”
What kind of sacrifice was it for Jesus to become man? Because His sacrifice wasn’t just dying on the cross. He took on flesh, which is humble already. People are surprised Jesus was so humble. Why not when He already humbled Himself enough to take on flesh as God.
Note to listener: This episode was more conversational, so the show notes do not have as much depth. For more information on this topic, listen to the episode. You can also follow Albert on social media to get devotionals and read his insightful posts.
