Baby Jesus Is The Everlasting Father

 Today I am continuing my study in one of my favorite verses for Christmas time, which is Isaiah 9:6 which says “For unto us a child is born, unto 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.”

I’ve already focused on the first two names that God calls baby Jesus – “Wonderful Counselor” and “Mighty God”. Today I am pondering His name “Everlasting Father.”

This is a verse that clearly points to the trinity – Jesus is the Everlasting Father! They are one! And then I think about the word “Everlasting” and how God never changes. We can experience his love for all time. Let that soak in. It’s hard for us to imagine because we live in a finite world. God the Son is not bound by time or space. In an ever changing world we can be totally secure in Christ – he is from everlasting and will continue on with us into eternity for forever!

My friend Aimee  sent me an email yesterday morning. In it she was writing about how God is like our earthly father and it seemed appropriate to share as I am looking at Jesus being the “Everlasting Father.” Here is what she wrote:

 
 
 ”I was thinking today about the access we have to God — I compared it to my boys freely going to their daddy, running into his arms when he comes in from work, or crawling up on the couch with him to snuggle in his arms or on his chest, and the fact that he might be sleeping does not deter them; afterall he’s their daddy, why shouldn’t they crawl up into his arms even if it means waking him up. Now, I know that God never sleeps, but if someone else looked at a man sleeping, most would leave him alone — not a good time to approach him, but children, with their daddies, in their innocence, go to him on a whim. That is how God wants us to be with him; come to him, crawl up into his arms and bear our hearts to him, on a whim, anytime, all the time. That is humbling.” 

Have you crawled up into the arms of your Everlasting Father yet today? He loves you – He desires to be close to you. Won’t you take the time today and allow him to talk to you through His word, listen – allow him to speak to your soul. He is always watching, He is always listening and He cares for you!

Walk with the King!

  1. Ohhh I love the picture you used today Courtney!! Goes along perfect with what you wrote. Sometimes it’s hard to see God as our “daddy”, but He truly is! He desires for us to respond to Him in that manner seeking that approachable and lovable relationship!

    Love God Greatly!

  3. Hello,

    I just wanted to say thank you for posting this. This is a great reminder of how we are never alone. I am so glad that I am a Christian. Serving God is so amazing. I laugh at people who think serving God is boring.
