For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
The birth of Jesus Christ is an amazing testament to how humble and loving God is. To leave his throne in heaven to become subject to all of the pain and corruption a human being is subject to, to show his love in a way that would bridge the gap between creator and creation. He lived, he taught, he healed, and he suffered all of this for us. As we celebrate this act of love, we should remember what all of this means and be shining examples, a light to the world. God did not call us to be quiet about our faith, he called us to be champions of it. Be a voice for Jesus Christ, an example for all.
