I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who reads free Christian resources, and to wish you a happy Christmas.
My Christmas message is Isaiah 9:6-7, which I have put below in both the NIV and message translations. For me this sums up Christmas. “The gift of a son—for us!”.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NIV)
For a child has been born—for us! The gift of a son—for us!
He’ll take over the running of the world. His names will be: Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness.
Isaiah 9:6 (The Message)
