A Name and an Identity - Matthew 1:18-25 - December 11, 2016

Do you know the meaning of your name?  Do you live up to that meaning?

Do you know what Jesus' Name means?

The name Immanuel means "God is with us".  Think of an interaction that Jesus had with a person in the gospels.  Did that person go away knowing they had just interacted with God?  How did Jesus exercise his deity with them?

What can you do in your daily life to assure people that God is with them and wants to be with them?  How can you assure them that God is not against them?
