Vital signs- Wednesday, December 6th, 2023

God has given us a gift. This Christmas present is not wrapped under a tree but wrapped in a cloth. God, in His absolute grace towards us, has freely given His Son. This child we celebrate is given “for us,” as Isaiah says, and will take His rightful place over all the governments of the earth. Israel watched as their kings failed them and as other nations took them captive. But this new leader would not be another disappointment. Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor. He exudes wisdom and discernment as a leader worth trusting and following. Jesus is the Mighty God. He is God in the very flesh, a powerful sovereign Lord though cloaked in humility. He is the Eternal Father. He protects and cares for those under His rule. He is the Prince of Peace. One day the nations will no longer struggle and contend against one another, for they will all be brought into harmony under the rule of Christ. This is the gift of Christmas. Jesus has come to set up a new kingdom on earth, and He reigns as a just, mighty, and wonderful God-King. Surely there is no one else to give our allegiance to.

Reflection Question: Which characteristic of Jesus in this passage sticks out to you the most? Why?

“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

Team Wade loves you and is praying for you❤️👊
