Promises of Christmas

The Christmas season reminds us of God’s promises: as Wonderful Counselor, he is close to those who are hurting and comforts us in our trials. As Mighty God, he provides for us and will never fail us. As Everlasting Father, he is with us always and will finish the work he started in us. As Prince of Peace, he gives us rest and lifts our burdens. Above all, he loves us and has given us the ultimate gift through his Son, Jesus. When we celebrate Christmas, we are reminded of these promises, but how do we live our lives in light of God’s faithfulness and goodness? How do these promises shape who we are as followers of Christ?
