A Child is Born

A Child is Born by Elizabeth GeorgeIsaiah is considered among the greatest of the Old Testament prophets because of his many predictions of the Messiah. For instance, you’ve probably heard this one during the Christmas season:

 “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”(Isaiah 9:6)

A Child is Born

The birth of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus, was the culmination of thousands of years of anticipation. Jesus’ coming to earth as the Savior was the fulfillment of the covenant promises that were made to Israel that shape the structure of the Old Testament. From this point onward, the rest of history would revolve around the brief years that Jesus Christ lived among us. 

Christ's Blessings

Consider all that Jesus the Christ, offers you and me. He:

S-ubstitutes His sinless life for our sinful one (2 Corinthians 5:21)
A-assures us of eternal life (John 10:28-29)
V-anquishes Satan’s hold on our life (2 Timothy 2:26)
I-nitiates us into the family of God (Galatians 4:4-6)
O-verthrows the power of sin (Romans 6:1-10)
R-econciles us to a holy God (2 Corinthians 5:19)

Jesus is the Promised One who, through His birth, death, and resurrection, brings us into a relationship with God when we believe in Him. This, my friend, is the true meaning of Christmas!

RESPOND

Dear God, this Christmas give me a heart that marvels at the fulfillment of Your promises and the blessing of Your Son. Amen.
