Isaiah 9:6 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.
After all the preparation and anticipation is over, there is peace. Reality sets in. The day has finally come for Jesus’ arrival. He is here. Now what? Now we continue on; not as we were before our preparations started, but with a bigger heart and more willing to follow Him. Remembering how we felt when giving to others and recreating that feeling by continuing to give of our time and friendship and love. God submitted Himself to this lowly state of mortality to experience pain, sickness, heartache and evil. Why? So He would know how to succor His people (you and me).
And peace, good will toward men!
