Fresh Hope – 25th December 2018

The book of Isaiah 9 v 6 says… “and he shall be called wonderful counsellor, mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of peace.”

A truly beautiful verse for this season.  Jesus wasn’t just a baby in Bethlehem, He was all of the following too…

Wonderful counsellor – yes,  He is someone to talk to, someone to confide in, someone who will listen.  He also gives the best advice. Try talking to Jesus. He is always there, always ‘on call’ day or night. Never think you’re alone when you have Him in your life. You can bring to Him every thought, every desire, every need, every hurt. He is a wonderful counsellor.

Mighty God  – nothing is too hard for Him or too difficult.

Nothing is impossible and nothing fazes Him.

He is mighty in power and deed.  Whatever your need or your problem, He is able to meet it and deal with it.  No sickness is too far gone for Him to heal, no person too far out of reach, He is a Mighty God.

Everlasting Father – you may not have a great

experience of your real Dad, you may not even know who he is, but today you can know God as your everlasting Father.  The best Father you could ever wish for and He will always be so, He’s everlasting…and guess what? He wants you to be His daughter or Son, you have an opportunity right now to belong to the family of God. God is just a prayer away.

The Prince of Peace – in days and times of uncertainty, when worry and fear can try and take over your life, let Him be the Prince of Peace to you. The Bible says, He brings peace that the world cannot give.  Peace that is beyond understanding. When you know God, you can know real peace and that’s a gift that money cannot buy.

Wherever you are today in the world and reading this, from all of us at Champions Church, we wish you a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
