“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.” (Isaiah 9:6)
Jesus came for no other reason than to seek and to save those that are lost, and to destroy the works of the enemy.
“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.” (Luke 19:10)
“But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil.”(1 John 3:8)
Knowing this, when we read a Scripture like today’s, we can see that God sent His Son into the world to redeem us. I love how this verse gives us different names of Jesus. Let us look at them today:
His name will be called Wonderful, He is the most wonderful of all! He is high and lifted up, and one day, we will see His glory.
He is our Counselor. He is the greatest counselor that we could ever have. When we need wisdom, we need to go to Him, for He is all wisdom. He created us, and He knows what makes us tick. So go to Him for your counsel. Fall on your knees, and listen to His sweet, still voice.
He is the Mighty God. He is the One true God who came to redeem us and set us free. He is the only God, and the only One that can bring us to salvation, and the forgiveness of sin.
He is the Everlasting Father, and as Daniel has stated in his book, He is the Ancient of Days. He was before there ever was anything. He is the beginning, because He created the beginning. All things revolve around Him, and He is the One who has now given us eternal life.
He is the Prince of Peace. One day, when the rulers of this world bow to Him, there will be peace on earth as this world has not seen since before the fall of Adam and Eve. The scripture says that the lion will lay with the lamb. There will be no more death or sickness. There will be no more sorrow or tears. This is the true peace that our hearts yearn for. So today, look at each of these names and let Him become all of them to you!
“Today, I declare that Jesus is Wonderful to me! He is my Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.”
Christmas is an opportunity. Not an opportunity for selfish gain, but an opportunity to give God the gift He desires. Maybe you gave your heart to Jesus years ago and wandered. Maybe you’ve never given your heart to God.
As we celebrate Jesus giving Himself to us, won’t you take the opportunity to give yourself to Jesus?
Heavenly Father, Thank You for loving me so much. Thank You that You would leave heaven to come, suffer and die for me. You are the Gift of all Gifts. Sometimes I have neglected the gift that You gave, forgive me. Lord, I have been blessed by You. Thank You for Your incredible plan for my salvation. I will continue to give all of my life to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
