“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given…” —Isaiah 9:6
Before Jesus was born, Isaiah prophesied of His birth. Isaiah lived 700 years before Christ. This prophecy was fulfilled in the most amazing way. This glorious King, the Messiah, came as a little child: to us a child is born. He who was for eternity the Son of God, was given to us as a little Baby in Bethlehem. As we worship Him this Christmas, may our celebrations be filled with joy and wonder at the fullness of what it means – our heavenly Father has given us His only begotten Son, and whoever believes in Him will have eternal life.
Father, thank You for not just sending, but giving Your Son to us. He is the most wonderful gift of all!
