“For to us a child is born … and he will be called … Mighty God …” Isaiah 9:6 KJV
Wow, here we are! It is already time for the Preaching Plan of the second quarter of the new Circuit.
It is also the quarter that we remember God’s Son entering our world and embracing humanity. Christmas is a special time! It is a time to be generous, a time to think of others, a time to show hospitality and a time to thank God for His humbleness.
Christmas is a time to stop our everyday activities and “take stock” of our life. It is a time to remember that the truth of Christmas is still relevant for us as humanity in the 21st century. The above verse is a remarkable revelation. Jesus sets aside the glory and splendour of Heaven to take on the form of human life; and yet remains the Mighty God. One of God’s names is “Immanuel”, which means “God with us”. I find it so amazing to consider that the very God who has the power to create chooses to be with His creation in human form.
Let us not lose sight of this awesome truth amidst all the turkey, tinsel and present wrappings; and may we in this quarter continue our journey of discovering more of the Mighty God.
May Mighty God bless you and yours over the Christmas and New Year celebrations,
