Isaiah 9:6 NASB "For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."There have been times in my life when the anticipation of what was to come was almost overwhelming! Like when I was about to be married to the most wonderful woman in the world (sorry guys, I got her!) or when we awaited the arrival of the birth of our daughters, or the time when I understood what it meant to go fishing with my dad... there have been many times of anticipation in my life but nothing compares to when I met Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior! As the preacher shared the message, I felt something within me draw me to go down to the altar and give my life to Christ! This can be your day, to give your life to Christ and to think that He came to us as a small Child! Today's verse shares exactly what we anticipate as we celebrate His Birth - a Wonderful Counselor (He's always there to help) a Mighty God (there is no one like Him), our Eternal Father (who always loves us) and the Prince of Peace (if there was ever a time in our life when we need the Peace of Christ, it's now!) Let the anticipation of His Birth be completed by accepting Him as your Lord and Savior this day - peace, tom
