Last day for Isaiah 7:14 – did you get it memorized?


This past week we had the pleasure to study and reflect on Isaiah 7:14 (below). This verse speaks very clearly to the coming messiah, which is what we celebrate this time of year with the holiday “Christmas.” 
 
I hope that you were able to give this verse some thought. If so, what did you learn? What stood out to you about this passage? Why is it significant that his name is called Immanuel?
 

Isaiah 7:14 (ESV)

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. 
Take a few moments to reflect on this verse, then spend some time sharing your observations in the comments. I look forward to discussing this with you!
 
Stop by tomorrow for another verse from the Old Testament that prophesied the coming Messiah. 

A Lamp to my Feet, Focusing on Christmas – Isaiah 7:14


December. Christmas. Crowds. Spending a lot of money. The usual, right? This is what Christmas has become and it couldn’t be more distracting. Christmas is a time for us to remember, reflect, and worship because of God sending his one and only Son to us in the form of a baby who would grow into a man and eventually give his life on a cross for those who would believe in him (John 3:16). That is why we celebrate Christmas. 

This week is a simple verse. Actually just one verse. I want you to spend as much time on this as you have with the passages in the past. Really study this and think about what it says. You are probably familiar with it, so that will cause you to read it very fast and glaze over it. Fight that urge and take your time. Do some research and bible study (remember to do so with the context in mind). This will be a rewarding exercise and I look forward to seeing what you learn through he week.
