How do you welcome God-with-us?

The promise of Christ begins in Israel, but its implications run to the ends of the earth. Israel’s exile will end because relationship with the Lord will be restored. The offer of that relationship will be for all people. Imagine yourself as Joseph hearing from an angel of God that your betrothed will give birth to Emmanuel-God-is-with-us. Experience the amazement, the wonder, awe and joy. How do you welcome God-with-us?
