What We Need For Christmas Summary


Merry Christmas everyone!

Thank you for reading this week about what we NEED for Christmas.

Remember that whatever mess we find ourselves and the world in, Christmas is a reminder that God has not given up on us and on the world.  Isaiah 9:6, a prophecy from around 700 BC describes the Christ we celebrate each Christmas:

“And his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

To meet our deepest, most significant needs, this Christ is provided for us.
         As Wonderful Counselor, He is our source of wisdom; (Tuesday’s post)
         As Mighty God, He will empower us to live as He did; (Wednesday)
         As Everlasting Father, He invites us with unconditional love into His family; (Thursday)
         As Prince of Peace, He buys peace between us and Him, and between us and others. (Friday)

“Four gifts for Christmas. They are the greatest gifts that anybody can give or we can have, and they are all in Jesus. They are for us. They are for you, if you will have them.” – James Montgomery Boice

Celebrate these gifts today!

In closing here is a video of the Royal Choral Society performing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah, for He, the Christ of Christmas, shall reign forever and ever:
