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 (KJV)
The true meaning of Christmas is found in this beautiful truth of God’s love for all of mankind. It is this love that compelled the eternal God to be born into this world for the sole purpose of reconciling fallen humanity back to Himself. The birth of the Christ may serve as a reminder that we can simply receive Him, knowing that the government of all that concerns us shall be upon His shoulders. This means we can cast our cares upon Him, and find rest and restoration in His amazing grace.
