“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)
Jesus was born on that glorious morning and with him came realizations that would change the world. The Truth of Life was awakened in mankind, fulfilling the prophesy of Isaiah. This son of God was the Messiah who gave us not only a healing and loving view of life, but one that was mighty and everlasting.
We can be reminded this holiday season that grateful awe is an appropriate feeling just as it was on the day of the Christ-child’s birth. For this innocent idea of God and His child continues to be the very governing power of our lives. This simple yet profound event dawns in our hearts each day as we accept this law of Life, God’s eternal Word about us as His own children and beloved.
Let’s bring to each day a renewed reverence for what we have been given. This light of healing Love continues to be the very undergirding Principle of the world and the controlling, guiding, protecting power over us all. The Prince of Peace has come and has not left us. This is everlasting Christmas—a new morning light each day awakening us to the Christ, the active presence of the divine here and now for all mankind to feel and know.
