Good Shepherd News
"Current Editon - excerpt"
GOOD SHEPHERD LUTHERAN CHURCH
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.
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.
Noel D. Koss, Interim Minister
