JESUS, THE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS
The Prophet Isaiah prophesied about the birth of Jesus more than 600 years before Jesus was born. According to Isaiah, Jesus would be the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace. Jesus came into our world to give us hope and salvation. He is a very personal God. He is not a God that is far from a distance and does not know what is going on in our lives. He knows our lives, and He knows our struggles. Jesus came to be our Wonderful Counselor to guide us through life.
Jesus is the Mighty God that can save us from our sins. He can protect us and keep us safe in His arms. He can provide for our needs and heal us from our sickness. He is the God who can give us new life and hope. No matter how mighty our God is, He loves us with His everlasting love because He is our Everlasting Father. Whether we are orphans, have good parents, or not, we have an Everlasting Father that is always present in our lives. He loves us, no matter what. Jesus can give us peace that surpasses all understanding. He can give us peace in the midst of the storm of life.
In this Christmas season, we need to rejoice that we have Jesus in our lives. Christmas is not just about giving and receiving gifts, but it is about celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus. We celebrate Christmas because our Savior has come into this world to be our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Let's take a moment in this Christmas season to have a personal time with our Lord Jesus and thank and praise Him for coming to our lives.
Ask yourself these questions: What is the reason for Christmas? Why did Jesus come into this world? How should I celebrate my Christmas?
Write down all the worries that you are facing today and lift them up to God.
Father in heaven, thank you for sending your Son, Jesus, into my life. Thank you, Jesus, for being my Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Please help to trust you with all of my heart and follow your ways. May I spend time this Christmas to thank you for everything that you have done in my life. In your name Jesus, I pray. Amen.
