A child is born, a son is given… a gift. Jesus was exactly that, a gift from the Father to all of humanity. The perfect King to rule and reign over an imperfect world. The prophecy that Isaiah wrote was meant to show us all that God wants for us, fairness, peace, to be our Father, for all eternity. How exciting to think that this one little baby, unremarkable, just a normal human baby, would hold such power, majesty and mercy in it’s tiny body. God was showing us that you don’t have to be mighty, don’t have to be of proud state, that even the greatest gifts can come from lowly, small beginnings. A baby, wrapped in clothes, the fulfillment of a promise God made… a gift to us.
