Jesus is... Isaiah 9:6 & The Homemaking Party


Merry Christmas!

Welcome to the last Homemaking Party of 2018! (Ok, I also realize it's only like the fourth of 2018 also...I'll do better next year, I promise!)

This holiday season, our pastor preached on the different names for Jesus prophesied by the prophet Isaiah. I was asked to summarize these sermons for some special readings last Sunday. I thought I'd share that with you on this beautiful Christmas Day! 
I hope you are having a fun and relaxing holiday season with those you love!

************************************

No one could have imagined what a single birth could mean for all of humanity, but Jesus changed the world when He came to Earth one holy night. He is both God of the universe and personal Friend to each one of us.

Our Jesus is wonderful. He cares for us with a wonderful love that can be found in no one but Him. His wonderful miracles bring delight to all creation. His assurance of salvation causes us to wonder at His goodness. We stand in awe of you, Jesus, our wonderful Lord.

Our Jesus is Counselor. We can trust His wisdom because His truths never fail. He has faced every temptation and He knows the human heart, for He is the One who created it. He knows all things and He patiently leads us toward His better ways. We trust you, Jesus, our wise Counselor.

Our Jesus is Mighty God. His power is greater than anything. With Mighty God, nothing is impossible. He moves mountains and quiets seas. All of Creation must obey Him. It is our joy to serve you, Jesus, our Mighty God.

Our Jesus is Everlasting Father. He guides us with a loving hand. He calls us His children and his compassion toward us is eternal. He will never leave us. He will never hurt us. We can be vulnerable with Him and give Him our whole hearts. We surrender to you, Jesus, our Everlasting Father.

Our Jesus is Prince of Peace. He overcame all the world’s trouble and pain to bring us the hope of peace. He is our refuge. We run to Him when life becomes overwhelming and He comforts us. His peace is for all of us. We will be still in Your hope, Jesus, our Prince of Peace. 

Our Jesus is Emmanuel. This name for our Lord was prophesied when the angel appeared to His mother, Mary. It means, “God with us,” and He is! Jesus is here with us now. He is with us when we worship, and when we mourn. He is with us at our workplaces, at our schools, and in our homes. He is with us during our darkest  times and during our greatest joys. He came to us. He stayed with us. He will never leave us. Thank you for being right here with us, Jesus, our Emmanuel.
