From Child to Everlasting Father

Christmas is a wondrous and joyous occasion when we celebrate the birth of a child who would grow to be the Everlasting Father, as foretold in Isaiah 9:6-7.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

– Isaiah 9:6 ESV

With the birth of this child in Bethlehem, the world received a gift beyond measure. This child, Jesus, would grow to become our Everlasting Father. He would provide for us as a loving and caring father does, guiding us through life’s challenges, offering us wisdom and granting us His eternal love.

Jesus walks with you every step of life. In times of uncertainty, you can turn to Him for guidance. When you face impossible challenges, remember that His strength is your strength. It only requires you to have trust in Him.

Knowing and trusting that Jesus is your Everlasting Father means you are never alone. He is there to listen to your prayers, to comfort you in times of sorrow and to celebrate with you in times of joy. His love is unwavering and everlasting.

Jesus was the ultimate prophecy fulfilled for your salvation.

Hope springs eternal in the birth of the Savior. Regardless of the circumstances you may find yourself in, remember that the Prince of Peace is with you, bringing peace that surpasses all understanding. This hope is for Christmas and every day of your life.

As you go about your Christmas celebrations, take a moment to reflect on the fulfillment of prophecy in the birth of Jesus, your Everlasting Father. Embrace the assurance and hope that He brings into your life. Let His love guide you, and in all that you do, seek to share His love with others.
