Isaiah 9:6: “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
We do pray that each of you will have a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS. We are reminded as we read this verse of how much we have because of the Lord Jesus Christ. Over this past year we have seen Him be Wonderful in all the ways He has not only worked in us but through us. We have seen Him be the Counselor as He has taught us, changed us and always been there for us to talk to. We have seen Him be a Mighty God as He has never left us nor forsaken us and has always been faithful in every situation. We have seen the Everlasting Father who is the same yesterday today and forever. And we have seen Him the Prince of Peace as we live in a world of turmoil and uncertainty.
We do thank God for sending His Son, Jesus to be born and to live a perfect life and then suffer on the cross for our sins. All of this, that we can have a relationship with HIM the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
It is hard to believe that we are just about to finish the year of 2014. Yet we have seen a lot happen this past year and we have enjoyed serving the Lord and being a part of seeing His Name go forth right here where we live and around the world.
As we now look forward to a the new year of 2015 we are already filling up the calendar with different opportunities where God has given us the privilege to serve Him. Thank You Lord!
