Christmas Verses – The First Coming #13

Isaiah 9:6 NIV

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.

This part of Chapter 9 is an encouragement for Judah at a bleak time, and the names or titles for this Child are awesome.  But the word that has stood out as I have pondered this verse for this season is “us.” Jesus did all of this for US!
