A Child is Born

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 NKJV


A Child is Born

A devotional for the week of December 20th through the 26th


This verse was written long before Jesus was born.  One of the many prophesies from the old testament.  It amazes me how you can read the old testament and see so much that talks about the coming savior.  What a promise God made from the beginning.  All to save this fallen world.

I often try to place myself in the place of Joseph, Mary, all the different “characters” in the story.  What must it have been like? What must have gone through their minds.  Did they truly realize the magnitude of what was happening?  What it meant?  I am in awe thinking about God’s plan to save us all.  To come to this world as a small child.  God knew.  God knew it all from the beginning.

How thankful I am to God for his gift, the greatest gift ever given!  The gift of salvation.  It’s ours for the taking.  We just need to accept it.  God knows we have accepted his gift by our actions.  How we treat others.  By showing God’s love to others, we are showing God we love Him. 

What a wonderful gift from our Heavenly Father!
