Christmas is so hectic that often times we can’t seem to really enjoy it. Last year, the new Chinese Bullet train set a record for traveling 302mph across the Chinese countryside. If your only purpose in riding a train is to get to your destination as quickly as possible, that would be great. However, if you want a scenic view of some amazing sights, then you need to slow the train down a bit.
I encouraged you to slow down the Christmas train and enjoy the ride. Seven hundred years before Christ birth, Isaiah said these amazingly prophetic words:
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6)
In doing so, Isaiah was telling us to slow the train down and gaze at the Savior. The Wisemen took his advice; the shepherds took his advice; the early church took his advice…will you? Besides when you look at Christ, Isaiah informed us that we will see some amazing things:
1) Christ is Your Top Advisor—“Wonderful Counselor”
2) Christ is Your Commander-In-Chief—“Might God”
3) Christ is Your Provider Forever—“Eternal Father”
4) Christ is Your Life Calmer—“Prince of Peace”
So slow the train down a bit this Christmas, and make sure you take note of who Christ is and who He should be in your life.
