DetailsChristmas is a season of comfort and joy... so much of the focus is on Christmas joy, but there is comfort too. That's the power of "Emmanuel"... God with us--the true source of comfort.
Jesus is here! We don't have to talk about him like he's in some distant land. And we can find incredible comfort in Him at all times - especially during the Christmas season. The Apostle Paul uses the word "comfort" 9 times in 5 verses (2 Corinthians 1:3-7) and there's a comfort so rich that we can pass on to others. A lot of help to hold on to during the holiday season.
