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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6, Holy Bible, King James Version)
A Savior was promised to fill many positions. His name, Jesus, is revealed in the New Testament, but here Isaiah tells of multiple roles from the Christ child to the everlasting Father. He was born for us. Not for a single culture or race. Not for a specific elite caste. Not for the wealthy. Not just for me. For you. For us. For all.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, You came to earth to be the Savior of all mankind. Thank you for including me. Amen.
