“ For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called “ Wonderful Counsellor, “ Mighty God” everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. Isaiah 9:5
The passage of time is never compromised in human life which often brings about fear and indecision. And thus various questions arise in our day to day life. Many people wonder about their future in this world full of struggle, pain and injustice. Where there are worries about working conditions and family we become stressed out and lose our grip. In despair and anger we lose our hope for survival.
In time of great darkness, God promised to send a light who would shine on everyone living in the shadow of death. He is both “Wonderful Counsellor” and “ Mighty God”.
This message of hope was fulfilled in the birth of Christ and the establishment of his eternal Kingdom. He came to deliver all people from their slavery to sin. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you” (Isaiah 60:1)
