Scripture of the Day - December 23, 2011

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

For unto us a child is born and, among other things, his name shall be called the mighty God and the everlasting Father!!  

How can that be? 
When you understand that this "child" is God almighty showing himself in the flesh then you can grasp how this "son"  can be called the everlasting Father. 
When you understand that this "child" is the human body that God manifest himself to mankind in then you can grasp that this "son" is the mighty God. 
When you understand that God came to earth to reconcile the world unto Himself (2Co 5:19  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself) then you can grasp that this "son" isn't a third person in a Godhead but God almighty in the flesh (Col. 2:8  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.) The complete Godhead is in Jesus. And this is why He is the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit all in ONE! 

When you understand WHO Jesus is then you can have a real relationship with Him. Till then, you are just practicing religion, you are just going through the motions, you don't feel anything and your religion is dead. 

Jesus came to bring life! This Christmas as we celebrate His birth why don't you take some time to think about why He came, think about how much He loves you and think about getting into a relationship with Him. It will be the best thing you could ever do!!
