Isaiah 9:6- 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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
- He is the Son of God as well as 100% man. He never has stopped being God and never will.
- This morning we are going to focus on one word; Wonderful.
- The idea of the word wonderful means miraculous, miracle or extraordinary.
Three reasons why Jesus was Miraculous.
First, Jesus was miraculous in his birth.
Isaiah 7:14- Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
- The supernatural birth of Jesus.
Luke 1:26- And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
- Jesus’ birth was a birth like no other.
Luke 1:34- Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
Secondly, Jesus was miraculous in his life.
- He was sinless, perfect and will always be.
Romans 3:10- As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
- Jesus was not a sinner by nature. Unlike us, it was impossible for Jesus to sin.
- Even others mentioned the sinless nature of Jesus Christ throughout scripture.
Lastly, Jesus was miraculous in his death.
- All three are connected together. He had to be born perfect, live a perfect life and die a perfect death for you and I.
- Missions are important. Jesus died for the sins of all humanity. The world needs to hear the message of the Gospel.
- Everything about the death of Jesus was miraculous. For that, we should be very thankful.
- His name is Wonderful.
- He can do in our lives what we can only imagine doing.
- Have you made the decision to receive Christ as your personal savior? It’s the most important decision you will ever make.
Do you know Christ as your Savior? Do you know for sure you are going to heaven when you die? You can know for sure you are going to heaven and that your sins are forgiven!
