January 17, 2020 Higher Everyday Devotional :- A SON IS GIVEN
FRIDAY JANUARY 17, 2020
TOPIC: A SON IS GIVEN
MEMORY VERSE: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (ISAIAH 9:6).
The whole earth lay in darkness with the prince of this world having a field day right from the fall of Adam until the glorious birth of the King of kings. No wonder upon the birth of Jesus, “…there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men”.
Prophet Isaiah’s prophesies of the birth and death of Jesus Christ for the redemption of mankind were fulfilled to the letter. Our text above reveals Jesus as the King to save, rule, judge and give peace to the world. Every sinner that repents of his/her sin and accepts Jesus as Lord and Saviour will be saved. Such will come with Him to rule this world in His millennial reign. Jesus’ birth was prophesied, angels heralded it and the Father later declared: “…This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17). If you are full of the condemnation of sin, open the door of your heart to Jesus for cleansing and forgiveness now.
QUOTE: The angels rejoiced at His birth.
CHALLENGE: No more excuse for remaining a sinner.
PRAYER: Thanks be to God for the gift of Jesus.
