For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end, Isaiah 9:6,7
This week will probably find us thinking a lot about gifts. Hopefully, most of our gifts have been purchased and are waiting to be opened. We are probably hoping that the recipient will enjoy their gift and think fondly of our care in choosing it.
This verse is my favorite Christmas verse. It reminds us of God’s Gift to us and gives us the name of not only who He is, but what He is…our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. This gifts continue on through the ages and will abide forever. That is a gift that keeps on giving! May we take some time this week to meditate on our wonderful Savior and the power of His name.
