Happy Birthday, Jesus

Isa 9:6-7 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.

Happy Birthday, Jesus.  Thank You for leaving Your Father in heaven to come to our earth as a baby.  Thank You for being willing to experience in our human, finite form the things we must experience during our physical life on this earth.  Thank You for showing us that God loves us.  Thank You for teaching us how we are to love God and each other.  Thank you for facing such a horrible death on the cross and bearing our sins – the things that separate us from God the Father – so we can have eternal life with You and the Father when our days on this earth are finished.  Let the way we celebrate Your coming as a baby to this earth put a smile on Your face.
