Merry Christmas: For to Us a Son Is Given

Just came home from GNIT SF monthly gathering and I was deeply grateful for the community life. This Christmas has some special meaning to me and very likely I will always remember it.

Kaka, possibly the most godly soccer player I’ve ever known, published a tweet yesterday night and I saw it this morning.

After translating it from Portuguese to English, I determined the scriptures that I would use for the intecessory prayer of the Christmas Service in our church.

“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.
Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.”

Book of Isaiah, 9:6-7

God kept His word and promise to His people, He sent His only begotten son to this world at that very Christmas. Today, will you keep your word and promise to God, if there is any?
