Fame Is Overrated

Date: December 24 (Christmas Eve)

Text: Isaiah 9:2-7

Theme: In this text the hope is that “a child will be born for us…he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” It is noteworthy that this child was not Caesar Augustus, Quirinius Governor of Syria or Herod the Great but the son of Mary, the one born in a stable and placed in a manger.
