Immanuel--God with us--is one of the names given to Jesus. That name tells us Who Jesus was when He came to earth--God in human form. He was God living with us. He was God who came to save us from our sins. In this message, Dr. Merritt explains that God came to earth as a human being so that human beings could come to know God.
"If Jesus Christ is indeed God, then there are two things He showed us how to do the way God wants us to do them. First of all, He showed us how to live and secondly, He showed how to love. We don’t have to wonder how God would treat other people--we know." --Dr. Merritt
