Baby books are a familiar sight among most newly married couples thinking of having children. With many newborns at Emmanuel and others ‘on the way’, the naming of children is front and center. Names have meaning and significance. When Isaiah declared his prophecy several centuries before the arrival of the Messiah born in Bethlehem, the longing had begun for this ‘child to be born… this son to be given’. Many in Israel were astounded at the prophecy of a coming king and kingdom that would never end; a kingdom of peace and righteousness, unlike any other kingdom. This Kingdom Child would be that great light to enlighten all.

What better counselor is there than God himself? The missionary-apostle Paul wrote to the Colossian Church these words, “In Christ all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell. The Christ Child born in Bethlehem is the prophesied ‘Wonderful Counselor’. His birth is miraculous. Miracles were performed by His hand. He taught like no other professor as one with authority and personified wisdom.  This title gives us insight into the incarnate Son as one who can be trusted; whose Word will never steer you wrong.

Working on a good team doesn’t happen by accident. It’s natural for us to fight for our own way and do our own thing, but a good team is refreshing and effective. When it comes to teamwork, we can choose unity or division. We can choose to do our own thing, or to lay ourselves aside in order to strengthen and benefit the team’s mission.

We have all been back to the store at one time or another to exchange something that was the wrong size or the wrong color etc. A wrong size shirt or shoe just doesn’t ‘make it’. In all those years when the apostle Paul was zealous for pleasing God, he had missed what true righteousness was all about. So do we. He finally gets knocked off his horse on the way to Damascus and the Lord meets him in a vision. Following his encounter with the living Christ, he learns that his credentialswere nothing in compared to Christ’s accomplishments on a wooden cross outside of Jerusalem.  The two sides of the ledger did not even out. Paul would find freedom and liberation and joy in knowing that his confidence could only rest in the perfect Son of God and his finished work.
