About 700 years before Christ’s birth, the prophet Isaiah wrote about the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In Isaiah 9:6, he penned, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Jesus became flesh and was born to a human mother. He was sent into the world to become our high priest when he died on the cross for our sins, and then rose from the dead to emerge as our Savior so that those who believe in Him will inherit eternal life. During this Christmas season, let us remember and reflect on why Christ came to earth. Merry Christmas to all!
