Today's Advent Passage: Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. - (Isaiah 9:6 ESV)

Think about the names given to the child that was born to us - Jesus. Spend some time reflecting on the purpose and power of these names. As you see references to "baby Jesus", remember all that was wrapped up in that tiny package. As Paul wrote to the Colossians, "For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell" (Colossians 1:19).
