We are continuing our message series with the prophet Isaiah as we get ready for Christmas. Isaiah 9:6 has four special names for Jesus, and this week we’re focusing on “Everlasting Father”!
When we hear the term “father,” we first probably think of our own father. Or, if you are a father yourself, you might think about the the responsibility you have in your role as a father for your children. Another possibility is to think about the founding fathers of our country – and recall the actions of men who were courageous, determined, as they led their people.
No matter what comes to mind, a father has many roles that comfort and protect us. At first, it might sound odd that the Bible calls Jesus “our everlasting Father” because we worship the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and Jesus is of course the Son! But upon further review, to call Jesus our Everlasting Father is appropriate – it’s very similar to calling him our Good Shepherd. Into eternity, he continues to provide and protect his children, who are also his sheep. Us!
Join us for today’s devotion about God, the Everlasting Father and may you find peace in His word!
