“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.” – Isaiah 9:6
– Let’s personalize this verse.
– Take the word ‘US’ and replace it with your own name.
– “For unto [your name] a child is born, unto [your name] a son is given.” – Isaiah 9:6
– This is the true wonder of the Christmas story.
– The Child and the Son was given to you and to me.
– Not just to humanity and history, but to you and to me!
– Not only must we accept this as a historical fact, we have to go a step further.
– We must accept it as a personal gift!
– Not for the person next to you, but for you!
– A Child was born for you!
– A Son was given for you!
– Have you received Him as your personal gift?
– Strip away, for a moment, all the history, the commercialization, the carols, the presents, the holidays and let’s get back to basics.
– Have you received this Child, this Son that God gave to you!
