Redeeming King

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.”

Isaiah 7:14 NKJV

As a parent, one of the greatest privileges we have is naming our children. Oftentimes those are to reflect the character of that child, for example my son's name is Ryan and it means "Little King". Our prayer is that he lives up to that name as a leader directing others to the true Leader, Jesus.

Isaiah the prophet spoke of a Deliverer who was to come. The prophet revealed the identity of a coming, redeeming King. This King's name is Immanuel, which translates “God with us”. (Matthew 1:23) This king went on to make a promise to us that He will never leave us or forsake us. We find great hope in the promises of God!

Today we worship this King who was prophesied of thousand of years ago by Isaiah. We bear witness of Him now to others. We testify of the "With Us" God who is still redeeming His people.
