Jesus was wonderful in His birth. God sent a tender helpless Babe in the Person of His Son, not born of man, but of the Holy Spirit.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6.
Jesus was wonderful when He lived on this earth. He went about doing good and they found no fault in Him, yet they nailed Him to a cross.
His teaching and miracles testified of who He really was, and a lot of people wanted nothing to do with Him.
In Jesus death He was wonderful. He died that we could have life. He gave His life so we could have salvation. And that was not the end. His death led to a wonderful Resurrection. And that gave everyone an opportunity to have eternal life and make Heaven their home.
How could any one say that Jesus is not wonderful. He is always with us. He gives us hope when there seems to be no hope.
His love for every one is unconditional. “Jesus is wonderful.”
