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, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
That gives us the perspective of both Heaven and earth. From earth’s perspective, unto us a child was born. That is what we celebrate at Christmas. But from Heaven’s perspective, unto us a Son is given. The Father sent the Son. He did this because He loves all of us, because He wants us to have the ultimate gift: the gift of eternal life. Our heavenly Father has given us His perfect, sufficient Son. O come, let us adore Him!
