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.
Only the love of God is able to carry out a task such as that of the incarnation. The perfect love of God was the source of power for the Son of God to strip himself of his majesty and to clothe himself in humility to save humanity. He who dwelt in heavenly glory and in perfect harmony with the Father and the Holy Spirit left his throne to descend to dwell among human misery and the evil that men housed in the depths of their hearts. The Creator and Author of life descended from heaven to bring light to a lost humanity, thereby ending darkness. Despite having taken the form of a servant his greatness and majesty was recognized by many and his grace and his love did not go unnoticed. His plans were completed successfully to the letter and the world was able to know salvation.
Need direction? The Lord Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor. Let his hand be your guide so that your foot will not stumble and you can live safe and secure. Are you discouraged and tired? Jesus Christ is Mighty God and he will help you because he has promised: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Do you think that nobody in the world loves you? The Lord Jesus Christ is the Everlasting Father and his love and compassion are unparalleled and have no end. Are you overwhelmed by worries and insecurity? Jesus is the Prince of Peace and only in him you will find calm and rest for your troubled heart. We sincerely hope that the true light that gives light to every man, life himself, will fill you all with his blessing and that love and glory become a reality in your lives. Merry Christmas! To God alone be the glory!
