The celebration of Christmas is like no other in our country. For at least a month in advance people are preparing and looking forward to December 25.
Christmas is the celebration of a baby born over 2000 years ago. Oh, but what a baby. This child born in Bethlehem was no ordinary child. Over seven hundred years in advance of His birth, Isaiah prophesied of His coming. What a first Christmas God was planning! This child would be special in so many ways. This child would be among other things the "Mighty God," the "Everlasting Father," and the "Prince of Peace."
As you celebrate Christmas this year. Be sure to celebrate who this baby really is.
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.
