I don’t know about you, but even after studying the Bible for over 40 years, I still struggle with the minor prophets. Not all that hot on a lot of the major prophets either, but amazingly, there are few people that don’t understand the meaning of Isaiah 9:6. “For unto us a Child is born. Unto us a Son is given.” Much of the world may choose to ignore or not believe those words, but their truth has not stopped ringing down the halls of the ages! That glorious night when Christ was born and the world was changed forever! “And they shall call His name Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Exalted names for such a humble beginning. In humility we should exalt Him! The Prince of Peace truly brought peace, and His peace should reign in our hearts! He came to bring peace between God and man. To give us His peace, not as the world gives, but an everlasting peace we can embrace daily! Enjoy this special time of the year, rejoicing, as the angels did, in your hearts, and don’t let the calendar dictate the end of the season because there is no end to His peace and joy! Merry Christmas!
