“Thanks be unto God for His indescribable gift.” (2 Corinthians 9:15)
Jesus is God’s love gift to a dark and gloomy world. In Isaiah 9:6-7, each of the names of Jesus reveal a priceless gift from God to us. He is our Wonderful Counselor – our source of divine wisdom. He is Mighty God – to be revered. He is Everlasting Father who loves us, and finally, He is our Prince of Peace bringing peace by having our guilt removed when we trust Him for salvation.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
