4 Wonderful Characteristics of Jesus

“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

This verse is one of the most powerful and inspirational prophecies about Jesus and it gives us four incredible attributes of Jesus in which we can find hope and comfort. 

First, Isaiah tells us that Jesus would be a "Wonderful Counselor." In a world that can be confusing and chaotic, Jesus provides guidance and direction for our lives. As we seek Him through His Word and in prayer, He offers us the clarity and wisdom we need to stay on the right path. 

Second, Isaiah reminds us that Jesus is not just a humble carpenter, good teacher or religious leader. He is God incarnate. He is the "Mighty God" who took on flesh and dwelt among us. He came to reveal His love, mercy, and justice. He came to save us from our sins and restore our relationship with the Father.

Third, we see that Jesus is also the "Everlasting Father" who loves us with an eternal love. He cares for us as a father cares for his children. He is patient with us, forgives us, and is always there for us. He promised that He will never leave us or forsake us.

Finally, Jesus is the "Prince of Peace" who came to bring us peace in a world that is often filled with conflict and strife. He promises to give us a peace that passes all understanding, the peace that comes from knowing that we are loved and cared for by God. 

No matter what is going on in your life today, you can lean into Jesus for His guidance, strength, comfort and peace!
