Advent: who is Jesus?

WP_20151207_003

This is one of my favourite Advent verses. These names give me such a sense of safety and provision; and a tangible reminder that Jesus is all that we need: A completely trustworthy counsellor; a Father who loves us unconditionally; a mighty God who can do anything; and a Prince of Peace who wants only what is best for us.

I am reading The Promises Bible Study and learnt over the weekend that wonderful means “beyond a person’s capabilities, unsolvable for man, or a miracle of God“. It really helped me grasp the divinity of a Wonderful Counsellor.

Going deeper: Listen here to this verse in context, a recording I made last Advent.

Writing about my contemplative journey to come closer to Jesus. I hope to inspire and equip others on their journey.
