Advent is designed to break us out of our routines and to help us again remember the significance of God breaking into our world. During this Advent season we are reflecting on Isaiah 9:6, the four names Isaiah gives to the promised child. This week we turn to the name Mighty God.
Mighty God is name of inspiration for a people who are living in fear. It is a name that gives hope that our God is there for us in our battles. He will fight on our behalf, not against flesh and blood, but against the powers that seek to destroy us. Our warrior, Jesus, turns victory and triumph upside down and calls us to follow his way.
