Sunday Scriptures — Unto Us a Child is Born

Since 2000, Andrew Peterson and his friends have performed Behold the Lamb around the country, telling again and again this “true myth”, as C.S. Lewis called it, this tale that’s bigger than life, but is—astonishingly—true. If you are able to attend this concert, I would highly recommend you do. Pilot and I have our annual tickets for the event.

Isaiah 40

A child has been born to us; God has given a son to us.
He will be responsible for leading the people. His name will be Wonderful Counselor, Powerful God, Father Who Lives Forever, Prince of Peace. Power and peace will be in his kingdom and will continue to grow forever. He will rule as king on David’s throne and over David’s kingdom. He will make it strong by ruling with justice and goodness from now on and forever. The Lord All-Powerful will do this because of his strong love for his people.  Isaiah 9:6-7

The birth of Jesus was prophesied over 700 years before his birth by the prophet, Isaiah. The child born of a virgin was God’s own son, given to all mankind. He would be a wonderful counselor. Powerful. Live forever, and reign in power and peace.

He would rule over David’s kingdom forever. Not as an earthly king, but as the King of Kings, and LORD of lords. That at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow in heaven, on earth, and under the earth.

Why did God do this? Because of his strong love for his people. Because of his strong love for you and me.

I wish you well.
