Prince of Peace



Advent Thoughts

“For unto us a child is born, to us a child is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 (NIV)

I first heard this verse quoted at a school Christmas program when I was in the fifth grade. Each time I hear it read or quoted, I find myself loving each name given to the child ‘born to us’.


. . . Wonderful Counselor . . .” Jesus is a source of wonder, a miracle. Who would have come from the glories of heaven as a child born into a poor family but God Himself? He has wisdom to guide us through all the circumstances we face in life.
 “. . .  Mighty God . . . “       God possesses all the might to do for us all we need.
 “. . . Everlasting Father . . .” the child is one who protects us always. He encircles us with His great arms of love and keeps the enemy from inflicting harm on us, His children.
 “. . . Prince of Peace” A friend posted a picture on Facebook that said: “Peace is not the absence of problems; Peace is the presence of Christ. (Sheila Walsh) Jesus gives us HIS peace, not the peace the world gives.  The peace of Christ lasts forever.
