Whatever we’re about to face, the Bible reminds us that God is always able – and committed – to do something good. Something fresh. Something new.
Continuing our series exploring the names of God, this week we are in Isaiah 9:6 – God who is Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father, Prince Of Peace.
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
The government will be on his shoulders
And he will be called
Prince of Peace.”
The bible builds a multidimensional picture of a holy God, who carries the name “God-who-makes-you-holy.” Based in the amazing vision in Isaiah 6, we look at what holiness looks like, why we’re drawn towards it, how we get it, and why it’s an unexpected answer to the deep questions of life.
The message from Isaiah 6:9. The gift of Jesus at Christmas as our Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.
The story from Isaiah 6. A revelation of who God is will make us respond in wonder and awe, a realisation of our need for mercy, and a commissioning to go.
