"For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulder, and His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)
Christmas greetings from all of us between the hills at Gil's Hills!
Remember about 15 years ago when the most intelligent of people were telling us to "Be Prepared" because of the Y2K event that was supposed to take place? Folks went crazy stock-piling food and supplies, gasoline, etc. and nothing happened.
The book of Isaiah was written about 750 years before the birth of Christ. The prophet said that a child was going to be born, a Son was going to be given and that He would be the everlasting Father. The words of Isaiah help us to "Be Prepared". The child was born and His name is Jesus. We can depend on God's Word to be infallible and inerrant.
If I have learned anything in my 25+ years at Gil's Hills, it has been to depend upon God for everything. Depending on Christ never seems to be easy; even when I was stricken with ALS, Linda and I knew that we had to depend on God for healing and not accept the verdict of 3 to 5 years to live. God always proves Himself faithful. His promises are more dependable than the things gold, silver and precious stones can provide. His promises are more dependable than the utility companies, the banks, your stocks, bonds, and savings. He is more dependable than your very best friend.
It was foretold that Jesus would be coming, and He did. He came to give everlasting life, and He did.
As we go through the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season lets try to remember to slow down long enough to give God praise and glory for sending His One and only son to save us from our sins.
He is the Reason For This Very Special Season!
