For a child has been born for us,
a son given to us;
authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.– Isaiah 9:6 NRSV
To the ancient Israelites celebrating the Passover also included joyfully watching and awaiting the coming of the Messiah. At Christmas we celebrate the incarnation, the first coming of the Messiah. We also joyfully await his second coming. May we take the words of Christ to heart when he told the disciples “you could not keep watch with me for one hour” (Matthew 26:40). May we joyfully, and prayerfully await his second coming, not only at Christmas but everyday
On another note I want to wish you and your families a very blessed and Merry Christmas. I appreciate the encouraging messages over the past few days. Though I don’t write or podcast for acclaim, it is always great to hear that the work is helping others. Thank you! Next week I will post a schedule of sorts. It will have days when new articles will be posted, YouTube video publishing dates, and podcast episode release dates. I’m trying to keep a set schedule going forward not only for you, but myself as well.
God bless you and remember the reason for the season.
