“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder. And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end. He will reign upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:6,7
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the season, I hope we can all remember the reason we are celebrating. The joy of giving to others comes from the Gift we all received that would indeed change our lives, change our hearts, change the world forever. He was the gift that the world needed, the gift that would bring hope to the hopeless, that would save the lost, that would set the captives free.
In the coming year may we remember He is the gift we should share. The most important gift we should give. May we all have the boldness to declare the Good News, to share the story of the King of Kings, to all who know Him not.
