The Child Of Promise-An Eternal Gift
JOHN SHIRK – Isaiah 9, verses 6 and 7 prophesied about the coming Messiah in this way: “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 it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.”
The Christian links this passage with Jesus, whose wisdom as the Wonderful Counselor is supreme and guides us in the path of God’s will. He is the Mighty God and is worthy of our worship. He is the Everlasting Father. He is our compassionate provider and protector forever. As the Prince of Peace, He will end all wars under His Kingdom, the nations will beat their swords into plowshares. Instruments that were designed for violence will be used to grow crops and feed people instead. His Kingdom will also be secure. No one will overthrow His throne. Today, the mission of Jesus continues to save souls and bring glory to His name. We can depend on the word of the LORD to fulfill His promises.
That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.
