This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Isaiah 9:6. This verse says that unto us a child is born, upon whose shoulders will be the government. He would be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.
At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Son of God. Isaiah 9:6 says that unto US a child is born. We are the reason He came to this earth. He came to save us from our sins. The little baby in the manger would grow up to be our Savior. God loved us so much that He gave what was most precious to Him, so that we could become His children!
Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. He was made unto us wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). He is everlasting, never-changing, and will be with us always (Matthew 28:20). He is the Son of God – God in the flesh. He is the Prince of Peace, the one who would finally bring about peace between us and God, by reconciling us to Him (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).
This Christmas, celebrate the One who came to save you!
