This Child was born for the sake of us people, we sinners, of all believers, from the beginning to the end of the world. With good reason, he’s called Wonderful, because he is both God and man. His love is the wonder of angels and glorified saints. He is the Counsellor because, he knew the counsels of God from eternity; and he gives counsel to men, in which he advises our well-being. He is the Wonderful Counsellor; none teaches like him. He is God, the mighty One. The Character of, is the labor of the Mediator, that no less power than that of the mighty God could deliver. He is God, one with the Father. As the Prince of Peace, he reconciles us to God; he is the Giver of peace in the heart and moral sense; and when his kingdom is fully rooted, men will learn to war no more. The government will be in sync with him; he will carry the burden of it. Divine things are spoken of Christ’s government. There is no end to the growth of its peace because the happiness of its peoples will last for eternity. The exact agreement of this prophecy with the doctrine of the New Testament shows that Jewish prophets and Christian teachers had the same view of the person and salvation of the Messiah.
With that, how can we not believe? He was born specifically to save us, sinners. It’s amazing! I look forward to peace for eternity. Peace is something the world had been working towards for some time now. The whole earth needs Jesus. That’s where peace is found. In HIM and HIM alone!
Join me this season to seek out His peace.
Dear Heavenly Father, I seek Your peace. I pray that the readers of this blog will also seek You, not just for peace but, for their salvation as well. Thank You for Jesus! He’s the reason for the Christmas season! In Jesus’ name, amen.
