6 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.
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
Christmas Greetings from your friends at the Korea Anabaptist Center!
This is the time of year when we remember the arrival of our Messiah, that child born over two millennia ago. Jesus may have come as a baby, but he is the human manifestation of a Mighty God; our Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Here at the KAC we talk much of peace. It seems a big issue, what with conflicts raging the world over, and perhaps even in our backyards. But there is hope found in the prophesies of Isaiah: “of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.” No matter what quarrels, worries, politics or problems may rule your life right now, know that His justice and righteousness reign. His Peace is growing. May you ponder this with an open and sincere heart this season.
