Bible Verse for Today
“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)
Merry Christmas to you! God has sent prophets to tell people about him and what he wants to do. However, these prophets have limitations, and they couldn’t undo what the enemy, Satan, has done to this world which is bringing death. There had been a war against sin and death that was brought upon humanity by the devil.

The birth of Christ marks the beginning of the new strategy by God to fight sin. Christ was born to draw us closer to God; he is the assurance that God is with us. So Matthew 1:23 says, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”
Jesus is the greatest gift from God. He came to give us life. And He is the demonstration of God’s love for us. So John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” So there was joy when Chris was born because the king was here, the Savior of humanity, the only one who could deliver us, and he did.
In this festive season, we should not forget the real purpose why Christ was born – and so rejoice because it’s the mark of a new beginning.
