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, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. --Isaiah 9: 6-7
Pastor Mark has chosen Isaiah 9:6 as the theme verse for the month of December.
1. Jesus was born to Israel. He came unto His own, but His own received Him not; but unto those who receive Him, He gives power to become the sons of God.
2. Jesus will rule over God's people: He shall come forth ruler of Israel forever (Micah 5:2)
Today we look at the name "Wonderful Counselor." He is Wonderful because of His lowly birth and His sinless life.
Here are ten reasons why He is wonderful to me.
1. He saved me; 2. He comforts me; 3. He cares for me; 4. He is changing lives; 5. He does and is doing a wonderful work. 6. He is still saving souls; 7. He is still in control; 8. He still provides for every need; 9. He is Here! And, 10. His love for me never changes.
