“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Do you stand in awe of the Lord Jesus Christ? Or have you become oblivious to Him? Do you get excited when you think of Jesus? If you don’t, you’ve lost the wonder. You have calluses on your soul. Jesus is wonderful. Wonderful in His birth. Wonderful in His life, in His death, in His resurrection, and in His second coming. His name is wonderful.
I heard of a man riding on a train looking out the window and he kept saying, “Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.” The man sitting next to him said, “Why do you think everything is wonderful?” He said, “I’ve been blind, but I’ve just had surgery, and I’m seeing beautiful things that I had long since forgotten. They are wonderful to me.”
If Jesus is not wonderful to you, you need something done to your spiritual eyes so you can see just how wonderful He is. There is wonder in His name. There is also wisdom in His name because His name is Counselor. People come to me for counsel at times. I can’t solve their problems, so when I counsel them, I try to lead them to the One who can solve their problems—the Lord Jesus Christ. I don’t want them dependent upon me. I want them to know Jesus. There is wonder and there is wisdom in His name.
Think of someone you know who lives with wonder at Jesus. Ask that person to share a testimony with you about the day-after-day wonder of knowing Jesus.
