With all that is going on in the world today, I am convinced more than ever that Jesus Christ is the only one who can meet our NEEDS. With the recent events that happened in Newtown, Ct. and the continuing chaos throughout the world, we have learned that man’s ideas are not the solution. All around this world there’s a lot of suffering, hurt, discouragement, confusion, and pain. WE NEED HELP!
When God sent His only Son into the world (John 3:16), He knew what He was doing. In the book of Isaiah, the prophet foretells Christ coming to the earth and lists some of things that He will be for us. It reads, Isaiah 9:6 “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 Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Christ’s entrance into the world means we have access to:
- A WONDERFUL COUNSELOR – You can go to Him anytime for the wisdom and direction you need for all of life’s decisions. (John 16:5-15)
- A MIGHTY GOD – Because He is God, “with Him, all things are possible.” (Matt. 19:26)
- An EVERLASTING FATHER – In Him, you have a father who loves you, cares for your every need, and “will never leave or forsake you.” (Heb. 13:5)
- The PRINCE OF PEACE – It is only through Christ that you will ever find that “peace that surpasses all understanding” that your heart is longing for. (Phil. 4:7)
In a world full of chaos and pain, Jesus is the one gift that this world is desperately in need of. The exciting part about this gift is that He is only a prayer away.
