For unto 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
I have only one son. When I was expecting the birth of my son, my husband and I joyfully prepared for our baby boy.
Normally, in human terms, when a woman becomes a mother, it’s her child. But Isaiah 9:6 says, “Unto us a son is born, to us a son is given.” Jesus was God’s gift to humanity. He came to Earth to save all of us. He wasn’t just Mary’s son; He was the son of God, a gift to all mankind. How incredibly special and wonderful that is!
He counsels us, teaches us, embodies the Heavenly Father, and brings us peace. His role in our lives is of the utmost importance. Amen.
