Christmas
Isaiah 9:2-7


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.  Isaiah 9.6  

Bethlehem and Jerusalem are less than a mile apart, or so it would seem; but the significance of their closeness is amplified by Isaiah’s opening comment in chapter nine of his prophecy:  The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light:  they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them the light shined….  For unto us a child is born.   

Who can tell the meaning of the Christmas miracle in more beautiful detail?  The great and mighty wonder of our blessed Savior’s birth, the blessed will of the heavenly Father to save mankind from the ravages of this life, the sending of His very own dear Son to save us from eternal destruction sheds heavenly light upon the throne of His everlasting glory and love.  It brings joy to those who dwell in the land of the shadow of death.  It gives sure and certain hope to the likes of you and me. 

As we consider the names of majesty and power here conferred upon the Babe of Bethlehem, we bow before Him with the lowly shepherds and the lofty wise men to consider that He was sent by God to save us all.  We are amazed that even the angels desired to see it.  And we are comforted with the fact that sin and death no longer have power over us.   

We are God’s children!  For unto us is born a Savior who is Christ the Lord!   

Dear Lord Jesus, Thou mighty Prince of Peace, we are weak and frail.  Thou didst come from Thy throne of power and glory to be our Little Child, to share our weakness, to suffer and die for all our sins.  We remain lost in our wrongdoing, but Thou art able to save us all.  Grant us evermore the faith to believe that by Thy holy life and innocent suffering and death we are made free to be Your children forevermore.  May we bask in this Christmas joy this holy season, and always.  Amen.
