And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6 NASB)
Ok – Honestly – I am not smart enough to figure out the trinity. I get Father, Son, Holy Spirit (sort of) but now I am seeing prophecy that calls Jesus the Eternal Father.
How does this work?
I dunno – but I am OK with that.
I do know that Jesus has the heart of a father.
When He met the woman at the well, He confronted the mess in her life.
When He met the woman caught in adultery, rather than taking up stones, He treated her as a father would treat His daughter.
When He met the leper whose only question was whether Jesus was willing, He said I will.
When He met the man whose son was throwing himself into the fire, He listened to the man’s tale and cast the evil spirit out of the boy.
He gave the widow of Nain back her son.
He let the little children come to Him.
Truly this Son of God is an Eternal Father.
I am so thankful.
How has He been a Father to you?
