A Child Is Born - A Son Is Given...

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, 
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…
(Isaiah 9:6-7)

A Child is born
Immanuel ~ God with us - the Word made flesh.
Birthed in Bethlehem among the shepherds.
Born of a woman - her womb His home.
God incarnate - His cries pierce heaven.
The promise of Israel - chosen and manifest for us.

A Son is given
Son of the Living God, beloved of His Father.
The son of a carpenter, beloved of his earthly father.
The Son of Man - given for all mankind.

The government will be upon His Shoulder
Ruler of all - King of kings and Lord of lords
The earth is His in all fullness and form.
He rules in righteousness and His judgments are just.
He reigns with love and bears our burden.

His name will be called Wonderful
He is wonderful and too lofty to comprehend.
His works are marvelous and beyond words.
Mercy and grace are His manifold gifts.

His Spirit guides us into all truth.
His ways are higher and His wisdom is renown.
His counsel is wise and His thoughts are pure.
He advocates for justice and fairness.

Mighty God
His name is El Elyon - our God Most High  
He is Elohim - Creator of all things.
He is mighty to save - a strong tower of refuge.

Everlasting Father
He is the Eternal God - from everlasting to everlasting.
Father of the living - now and forevermore.

Prince of Peace
He is the Prince of the earth - keeper of all things.
Love is His scepter and healing is His balm.
His peace shall increase and abound more and more.
His peace is desired above all treasures on earth.

What does this Child mean to you?  Does Christmas warm your heart and stir your spirit?  Does Jesus Christ fulfill your longing and comfort your soul?  This Child is like none other...

 What Child Is This?

What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

   This, this is Christ the King,
   Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
   Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
   The babe, the son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own Him;
The Kings of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

William Chatterton Dix  (1837-1898)

and begin a new life as a Christian believer.
