For to us a Child is born...

Isaiah 9:6 says, 'For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.'

Before the birth of Jesus the prophet Isaiah records these words. Somewhat prophetic, in hindsight of what we understand about Jesus. He is a wonderful counselor, his is a mighty God, he is an everlasting Father, and he is the ultimate Prince of Peace. Thanks God for these descriptors and reminders of the nature of who Jesus is.

Have a happy and blessed Christmas. Jesus transforms lives and so we celebrate his birth this year. We pray many might come to understand the love and forgiveness of Christ in their own life this Christmas time.
