For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

—Isaiah 9:6

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

While Jesus is God’s Son and Mary’s son, according to Isaiah’s prophecy, he is also shared with us. Jesus is the child given to the world so you and I can become God’s child. What greater gift can we have than Jesus, and through Jesus, God as our Father.

My Prayer…

O loving Father, on a day so glorious, when the world pauses and acknowledges your gift of Jesus, all I can think to say is simply “Thank you!” Then I am reminded once again that all I have comes from him because it is in His name, Jesus Christ, Immanuel, I pray. Amen.
