Telling Names

today's reading.
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel...

think about it.
What is the sign the Lord gives (7:14)? What's so important about his name (7:14)? What can the people look forward to (9:2-7)? How do these two promises (7:14; 9:6) fit together? What does this son offer to you, based on his names? Based on the extent of his power?

the blog.
Five incredible, descriptive names: Immanuel...Wonderful Counselor...Mighty God...Everlasting Father...Prince of Peace.
