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, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
The real wonder of Christmas is Jesus Christ. Just for today, let’s not get in a rush. Let’s learn to spend time in his presence and worship the Lord—that being a miracle worth sharing with a dying world. We have no reason to be downcast, today, because Jesus came to lift us up. I’m thankful that I know who Jesus Christ is, and that no matter what circumstances I may face, he is still on the throne, and he’s God. He didn’t have to take on a fleshly body, but he did—so, let’s praise him for it. We can allow depression to creep into our lives, and rob us of our joy, or we can let peace move into our lives. Everything that we’ll ever need, or desire can be found in Jesus Christ, for he can satisfy the hunger in our soul like no other.
The angels rejoice each time a soul is saved. They know the sacrifice made by Jesus to redeem the world to himself. They were there when God robed himself in flesh, and was born to the virgin, Mary. They were so exuberant when Jesus was born, they sang, watched over our Savior in awe. The miracle conception, the miracle birth, the miracle of eternal life. It is all in Jesus Christ. And when Jesus shed his blood for man, he gave us the gift of eternal life, and sent the Comforter to us.
The angels wanted to look into these things.” We are a little lower than the
angels right now in this fleshly body, but we have our inheritance.
Angels are majestic—but they will never know the full power of Jesus Christ reigning in them after receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost.
Angels are eternal—but they will never be on the throne to reign with Christ.
Angels are servants—but they will never be able to trade their servant hood for a robe and a crown.
We have an inheritance, made possible by Jesus Christ. Let’s remember that Jesus is our Redeemer. He is Lord. Worship Him and He will do “exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask or think.”
His Name is truly Wonderful! We have hope because He was born. Jesus Christ came to redeem the world back to Himself and His love is unsurpassed. It is such a blessing to be able to worship a living God and to be in his presence, today. In Luke 2:10, “ The angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy.” They proclaimed a gift to the world that money couldn’t buy. Jesus Christ is the Gift to us all. He is our Savior and beside Him, there is no other . As you prepare for this season, don’t forget the real reason we are celebrating: Jesus Christ.
In this week’s Lattereign, we learn that It’s Time to be led beside the Still Waters.
