Christmas and Families
Christmas is a great time to get together with family to spend time socializing, and resting with people we know and love. Sometimes, it’s a trying time, especially if there is a particular family member who is difficult to get along with. Even still, Christmas may bring sadness because a certain family member is no longer there to celebrate the season with.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6).
There was no point in time when He came into being. He just was. In the last chapter of the entire Bible, we find it written, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” (Revelation 22:13). There is no end to His existence, or His position as God.
Considering Jesus’ position in the Godhead, He still sustained the world, even as a man, or as a baby. He said, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30), identifying Himself as God. From the beginning, throughout His time on Earth, all throughout the ages, and on into forever, this child who was born, is the Everlasting Father.
How is your relationship with your family? How about your father? Do you enjoy closeness, peace, love, and joy with each other? Whether our family brings us comfort or sorrow, or whether we have a father or not, we can know that the baby who’s birth we celebrate this season is the Everlasting Father.
He will neither leave us, nor forsake us, (Deuteronomy 31:6) and as a perfect father, He will never discourage us, nor bring us undue harm.
