Isaiah 9:6-7 NIV
[6] 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. [7] Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.

Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end! The cross looked like a dreadful and final end but God had spoken and death was defeated. To bow the knee to Jesus is to join the winning side – he is wonderful, everlasting, the prince of peace!

Lord Jesus, we worship you as we see Gods word fulfilled in your death and rising again to bring life to all who will trust you.
