A Gift

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given...can we stop right there. Through the prophet Isaiah we get a glimpse, a peak under the tent as it were, to Who our Redeemer will be and in fact, now has become.

In a world where marriages fail and families fall apart; where conventional wisdom is anything but conventional, and certainly not common, we have been offered a Wonderful Counselor through the person of Jesus Christ. For not only does His Word offer good counsel (wisdom) to us, but Christ alone was and is intimately acquainted with the counsels of God from eternity.

In a world that has no heroes, where some feel they need to defend and spread their beliefs even if it means killing others, we have been offered a Mighty God; for Christ and Christ alone is able to save to the uttermost and it’s done by simply offering it to us.

In a world where everything is temporal; where Madison Ave. designs us to be discontented, we have been offered an Everlasting God, the Son, One with the Father, from everlasting to everlasting.

And in a world of confusion and uncertainty; where there are wars and rumors of wars, we have been offered The Prince of Peace Who is our Peace.

There are those in our world who think they are enlightened but in fact, have only become accustomed to the darkness. So, as was posted in our local airport, “In a city aglow with light, only You offer the Light of the World.”

So, unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given… and we are most grateful.
