Christmas time

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

It all about the name. I started a Bible reading plan for this Christmas season through the YouVersion Bible. Check them out if you haven’t already. It is free and contains a bunch of versions/translations.

Recently, the focus for one of the devotionals was in Isaiah 9 and the names and titles of the Messiah.

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.
7 Of the greatness 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.

 The activitiy for the day was to listen to part of Handel’s Messiah and meditate on one of the titles given to Jesus. Great stuff. Involve your kids and have them pick their favorite, too.

Thank You God for Jesus!
