For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6, NLT)
As the Christmas season approaches, so much of our time is spent focusing on the Christmas story and what God did for us all those years ago. We listen to and sing music that speaks of His life. Because life has a tendency to get beyond busy and overwhelming, it is easy to go through the motions without taking time to stop and think about just how miraculous the entire Christmas story is. God, our Everlasting Father, came to earth to save us from our sins. Wow! He is the best Christmas gift we could ever ask for.
Prayer: Let us not forget the most important reason for this season. As we sing songs to glorify you at Christmas, let us be a light to those who need you. In Jesus name, amen.
