Isaiah 9:6-7 (NLT)
6 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven�s Armies will make this happen!

The prophecy of Isaiah that God Himself was to preserve the promises made to King David. This would be accomplished through His son Jesus who would be sent into this world to die in order to establish a heavenly kingdom. God made a passionate commitment to this and promised it would be made to happen.

The life of Jesus was a model of humility. He was born in a stable with the animals and placed in a trough where they fed. Even though Jesus was in command of the heavenly angels who would obey His every command; Jesus worked and lived as a humble carpenter with His father. As Jesus began His ministry He often humbled himself to others; whether it was the woman at the well, foreigners or His own disciples. And lastly Jesus humbled himself in death to pay the penalty of our sins Jesus never committed. This child Jesus was born for us, given to us, and died for us. Remember our humble Savior, the loving kindness of His heart and the gift of salvation He freely gives.
