“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.”
In these days, when politics often causes such division between people, it’s a great comfort to be reminded that Jesus will one day rule over the whole earth. The names listed in this passage tell us what kind of ruler He’ll be: wonderful, mighty, everlasting. Another reason to celebrate the birth of God’s Son!
