The Remarkable Gift of Liberty
by Jeanette Whittaker
As the prophet Isaiah foretold the birth of Christ, he was divinely inspired to pen the words, “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.
Centuries would pass before the world would witness the promised Messiah. In the centuries that followed, the gospel message transformed the lives of believers.
Where would we be as individuals and as a nation without the transforming power of Christianity?
The remarkable gift of liberty has been entrusted to our care. How can we find a way to perpetuate that gift to our posterity?
The Christmas season is a time for so many things: rejoicing, remembering, renewing our commitment to follow our Lord and Savior.
As you gather with family, associates, friends, and fellow believers, we pray that like Mary you will ponder the meaning of the events which we celebrate, “Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11.
