December 1-2 – Wonderful Counselor
Many people struggle to find their way. Often we are inhibited from hearing the voice of God because of the noise that surrounds us. Through the gift of Christmas, God offers us the opportunity to be led by a Wonderful Counselor.
December 8-9 – Mighty God
While the baby in the manger didn’t appear to be a Mighty God, he certainly was – and still is. The miracle of Christmas wasn’t the first or last miracle God would perform. He is still a Mighty God who has the power to transform our lives today.
December 15-16 – Everlasting Father
The incarnation is a physical example of how much God wants to have a relationship with us. When we “come home for Christmas,” we are coming home to a Father who loves his children and wants what is best for them. No matter what we’ve done, we can always come back home to God (prodigal son).
December 23-24 – Prince of Peace
None of us grew up in a perfect household. Even the best of parents had arguments, disagreements, and tensions. Peace is not the absence of conflict; it is the assurance that God is in control of all things. True, lasting peace – the kind that transcends all understanding – is only available from God.
