“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.” Isaiah 9:6 NIV
No matter where Christmas finds our hearts and minds today, if we focus on the mighty Truth of God's Word, we will find the joy of Christmas--God coming down to earth to dwell among us, so that through His suffering and death and resurrection, He could save us from our sins, dwell in us, and give us eternal life so we can always be where He is. If you're a believer, He is your Wonderful Counselor, your Mighty God, your Everlasting Father, and your Prince of Peace. If you aren't a believer, He's waiting and willing to receive you to Himself. Don't delay! It was for everyone that He came. That's why we can still say Merry Christmas no matter what is going on in our lives. Jesus grew up to be our hope, our redemption, and the doorway to an abundant life in fellowship with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Thank you, Jesus! Happy Birthday!
