The God-Man Savior

“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace” (Isa. 9:6 NAS).

Christmas is a season that celebrates the greatest of all mysteries, as the Savior makes His entry into the world. The mystery of Christmas lies in the Person of the Savior, not necessarily in just the idea of a Savior.

The Jews were looking forward to the birth of the Messiah. But there was going to be something unusual about this Man to be born. They had known great anointed Kings like David and prophets like Moses, but this coming Messiah would be different. The scripture above calls Him “a child,” meaning he was to be born as a man, but also says that He is the “mighty God” and “Eternal Father.” The Yahweh of the Old Testament was going to come to save His people as a man. Christmas is a celebration of the mystery of God coming into the world as a man.

MEDITATE

Look carefully at each of the components of the verse above and ponder them.

PRAY

Praise the Lord for His love and wisdom that made it possible for us to be saved.

ACT ON THE WORD!

When Jesus was born, God took up human form to live on the earth. Today, He lives in you! His divine nature has been imparted to you in Christ. In whatever situation you face today, remember that the God-Man Savior now lives inside of you. It is the blessing of Christmas!
