It’s hard to adore someone you don’t really think about. River Valley Worship reminds us in their song, “Adore You,” that “unto us a child is born.” This is something Isaiah first foretold, and his words are something worth pondering.

This Week’s Challenge
Keep reading in Matthew 1 and 2, Luke 1 and 2, and now add Isaiah 9. It’s okay to meditate on the four names of Christ in this passage. You could follow some cross-references to learn more about how Christ displays these characteristics in Scripture. Be sure to read in context, even if it’s just to give you the practice to incorporate this habit into your own Bible interactions.
