Sunday, March 17, 2019. First Baptist Church, Burlington, Kansas. Pastor Jay Hale. There are numerous references in both the Old Testament and New Testament of the Bible that God is with us. The most notable reference for us is when in Matthew 1:23 Mary is told she will have a son and He will be called Emmanuel, which means God with Us. In John 14:18 Jesus tells us that He will never leave us. He will always be there for us. Jesus is our Jehovah Shammah, our God is There.
