Second Sunday of Advent
Names of the Messiah: Mighty God
Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:48-56
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace are the ancient royal titles that bear witness to the Messiah. Jesus as Wonderful Counselor gives us wonder-filled and divine wisdom for our holy living. In the title, Mighty God, gives us hope and strength as we experience great power in the music of Hendel, the Messiah. Mighty God came to rescue and restore us. “Handel knows better than any of us what will make an effect. And when he chooses, he strikes like a thunderbolt.” (Mozart’s thoughts on Hendel’s Messiah) “Absolute power of human being corrupts absolutely” (Lord Acton) but the Mighty Power of God brings change, restores sanity, and delivers true and lasting transformation and frees us to live for God and to serve his people. The love of Mighty God cleans our sin and cares for us. “He has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly>” (Luke:1:52)
