And he 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. He will reign on David’s throne over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. – Isaiah 9:6-7
Jesus is the answer! When Mary wrapped that baby boy in swaddling clothes and held him in her arms, she was holding the Savior of the world. The One that God had promised since the venom of sin poisoned the human race. Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor. Jesus is the Mighty God. Jesus is our Everlasting Father. Jesus is the Prince of Peace. And Jesus is the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. (John 1:29) There is no longer a need to search for the hope of eternity. He has already come. We celebrate Christmas because God entered humanity to save humanity. The first time Jesus came, it was as the Savior of the world. The next time He comes, it will be as the King.
For [God] has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. – Colossians 1:13-14
