Emmanuel’s verse of the year for 2023 celebrates the good news of the gospel and all that Jesus has done for us.
At a time when we long for depth of relationship, we are assured in this verse that it was our Father God who first reached out to us.
Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we can live free of the burden of our past, and with the certainty that we are deeply loved.
‘This is love; not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.‘
1 John 4 v 10.
