For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
Points to Ponder:
There is such richness in this week’s meditation, that it seemed appropriate to spend all week thinking about different segments. I trust that your heart has been touched and that already your heart is being prepared for the season in which we rejoice over the birth of our Savior.
Everyone loves a birthday. Let us not forget that what makes THIS birthday so very unique and special is that THIS baby was born to die. To die for you and for me that we might have life eternal. What a glorious gift.
2 Corinthians 5:15 He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
