“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).
“For to us”
The gift of Christ is a personal gift from God to us. God has a Christmas gift for you, not wrapped in bright paper and fancy ribbon, but in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. It is the gift of His Son. And it is for you.
When you are confused…He is the Wonderful Counselor.
When you are weak…..He is the Mighty God.
When you are scared……He is the Everlasting Father.
When you are upset or overwhelmed….He is the Prince of Peace.
We pray that as you think about the birth of Jesus this season, that you overwhelmed by the wisdom, power, presence and peace that came as a gift for you on that first Christmas day.
