Day 3: His Name Shall Be Called Wonderful – Hope In The Manger
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.Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
Reflection: Isaiah’s words paint a vivid picture of the Messiah’s identity and mission. Jesus is not just a great teacher or prophet; He is Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace. Each of these titles reflects an aspect of His divine nature and role in our salvation.
Illustration: Consider a multifaceted diamond. Each face reflects light differently, much like the various aspects of Christ’s character. As we ponder these titles, we see the many ways He touches and enriches our lives.
Prayer: Gracious God, we marvel at the wonder of Your Son and His many titles. Help us to know Him more deeply and to experience His peace, wisdom, and power in our lives. In Jesus precious name, we pray. Amen.
