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. – Isaiah 9:6 NIV
Jesus’ birth was cause for celebration. If He had a business card, He would have many titles. These names reveal something about His character.
He counsels us. He is powerful. His love lasts forever. He is one with God the Father. He brings peace to the world.
So often it feels like we don’t have peace. It takes mindfulness to understand where peace comes from, and instead of complaining, be thankful for the peace God gives us. He doesn’t want us to get into disputes with each other. He wants us to love one another the way He loves us. His peace is always available to us. Amen.
