Happie Christmas



A few hundred years before our Savior Jesus was born, Isaiah prophesied this:

"The people who walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
    on them has light shone.
You have multiplied the nation;
    you have increased its joy;
they rejoice before you
    as with joy at the harvest,
    as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
 For the yoke of his burden,
    and the staff for his shoulder,
    the rod of his oppressor,
    you have broken as on the day of Midian.
 For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult
    and every garment rolled in blood
    will be burned as fuel for the fire.
 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon[d] his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called[e]
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."


Isaiah 9: 2-6

Enter in Jesus 2012 years ago and this prophecy was finally fullfilled.  What a beautiful passage highlighting the One who came to save us all.  And he came in the most humble way, as a baby.  Today I hope you remember the greatest gift we could have ever received is the gift of our God putting skin on to come down to this earth to purchase our salvation.  May we also look ahead to the day that he will return a second time to carry us into Eternal life where we have the joy of spending forever and ever in his presence.

Hug your family today.  Love them well. We get super caught up in the gifts and hype of it all... trust me I do too. But Christ is what its really all about.  Merry Christmas!
