Christ, Born in Bethlehem

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 Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne and over hit kingdome,
establishing it and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. (NIV)

---Isaiah 9: 6-7

Ineffable wonder, unparalled hope for the world.

Tim Keller calls wonder involutary praise. And says that sense of wonder is what we all need to transform our lives into truly living the Gospel and the Good News, rather than just knowing about it and believing it. I agree.

So I wish you wonder and joy in this holiday season that transforms your life into the future.
