How can we, as Christian believers, stand up against the enemies of God in a wicked world? Where does that kind of courage come from? Next time we’ll find out how the promises of God can help us stand against the enemies of God in a wicked, fallen world.
We often hear Isaiah 9:6 during the Christmas season. It is part of Handel's Messiah. In this series, James Boice takes us through this familiar scripture and shows what it reveals about God's wonderful gift to us. God is called by four names in this passage. Each name describes a gift that God gives to us in Christ Jesus. And Christ, who bears those names, ministers to us in four separate ways. He is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Each of these names matches our needs. Dr. Boice looks at each one because together they describe the magnitude of this wonderful gift which God has given us in Jesus Christ at Christmas time.
