what does IMMANUEL mean for us?

From a preaching by Gregory Dickow, in the series “Changing Your Life”.

“A virgin will have a son, and He will be called Immanuel,” which means “God is with us.” (Matthew 1:23, fulfilling the prophecy in Isaiah 7:14)

What does this mean for us?

1) You will never be alone.
The Lord has promised that He will not leave us nor desert us. (Hebrews 13:5)

2) You will never be afraid.
Perfect love casts out fear. (1 John 4:18)

3) You will never be depressed.
"I bring you news of great joy." (Luke 2:10)

4) You will never be left out.
Grace is given freely and available to all. (Ephesians 1:6)

5) You will never be let down.
God has given us hope that does not disappoint. (Romans 5:5)
