Day 1 – November 27
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6 NKJV
Perhaps the most well known of the Old Testament Messianic prophecies, here is the promise of the first coming of Jesus Christ given 700 years before His actual birth. We wait now for Christ’s imminent return. For His second coming. While we wait in certain hope, God the Father invites us to His Son’s birthday party. As we prepare to celebrate Christ’s birthday, let us make room for Him in our hearts. It is the only sensible answer to God’s invitation.
Father, we thank You for sending Your son to save us from ourselves. We accept this Christmas gift in humility. And we make room for You in our hearts. Come on in. We pray this in the name of the Wonderful Counselor, Your Son Jesus the Christ. Amen.
