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. Of the increase of his government and 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 will accomplish this.
– Isaiah 9:6-7
For “to us” is born… Jesus was sent for “us”, to reach out from heaven and give us a taste of the righteousness and love of God. To walk among us as a living, breathing example of God’s mercy and an example of how we should live. We will never attain a sin-free life, but we can shoot for the high bar that Jesus set, relying on his guidance and strength.
