God Almighty is with us in human flesh, and we are liberated from the power of sin and death. We are “more than conquerors through Him who loves us.” The hymn writer John W. Peterson expresses it so well:


No one understands like Jesus.

He’s a friend beyond compare;

Meet Him at the throne of mercy;

He is waiting for you there.


No one understands like Jesus;

Every woe He sees and feels;

Tenderly He whispers comfort,

And the broken heart He heals.


No one understands like Jesus

When the foes of life assail;

You should never be discouraged;

Jesus cares and will not fail!


No one understands like Jesus

When you falter on the way;

Though you fail Him, sadly fail Him,

He will pardon you today.


CHORUS:

No one understands like Jesus

When the days are dark and grim;

No one is so near, so dear as Jesus--

Cast your every care on Him!

God is with us in Immanuel, and no one understands you better or loves you more than He does.
