- Government legislation has been dictating what we do and where we go (the census, v1-3).
- We have not been allowed to go into people’s houses (the inns were full, v7).
- Many of us have been quarantined and felt alone or isolated (Jesus was born far from family and friends, v4-7).
God came to live with us on that first Christmas despite all the government legislation, shut doors and loneliness. He still does. Show kids how all these things did not stop God then, and they do not stop Him now. Whatever has happened over the last 2 years we can be certain God understands, it does not stop Him, He was God Immanuel then, and He still is now.
GOD IS WITH US.
