The first of four momentous titles named in Isaiah’s beloved passage (Is. 9:6):

For a child will be born to us,

a son will be given to us,

and the government will rest on His shoulders.

And His name will be called,

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God

Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.


With 14 days until Christmas, I am gently turning my heart to refocus on the magnificent names of Christ . . .

. . . and perhaps the greatest name, the inspiration for this season,

Emmanuel, God with us.
