1 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 (NIV)
Last year, Westside went through these powerful names that are given to Christ. If you
were not with us last year (or if you don’t remember what these names were) we want to
encourage you to go back on our website and check out these powerful messages. From this
passage we know that Christ is a:
-Wonderful Counselor: Christ is with us. Being fully human, He knows what we go through on
this earth. Go to Him in your struggles and hurts.
-Mighty God: Though fully human, Christ was still fully God! Spend this Christmas in awe at
who He truly is and the power He has over the Earth.
-Everlasting Father: This also shows the power that Christ has. He is everlasting. Just as
important as dying on the cross, Jesus rose from the grave! He is with us to the end of time.
-Prince of Peace: Through Christ, there will be no more pain, no more sin, no more suffering.
Revelation tells us that when Christ comes again, there will be a renewing of the Earth, and all of His followers will be with Him. Let this comfort you and give you peace.
