Yesterday was Christmas. Many people went to church to acknowledge the Christ behind Christmas and even more celebrated Jesus in other ways. For my family, the day marked the last of four celebrations.
Now Christmas is over; we put it behind us for another year.
Yet long ago, Isaiah looked forward to Christmas, anticipating what was to come with these familiar words:
“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.”
Christmas may be over, but the celebration of Jesus continues.
Thank you Jesus for who you are and what you did.
