How About a Mulligan?

dartsEight hundred years earlier, Isaiah prophesied that Jesus would come. Isaiah didn’t use the names of Mary, Joseph, or Jesus. He used the names of Wonderful Counselor. Mighty God. Everlasting Father. Prince of Peace.

The people of his time knew in their heads the Messiah was coming, but their hearts were elsewhere. Maybe it’s a bit like us. Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our Savior, but we spend more time wondering what size sweater we should buy (will he want an X or XL?).

It’s all about a Mulligan–a do-over. Let’s start over, right now. We have the luxury of looking back over time. We know Jesus came to save us all. We know that in our heads. Before it’s too late, let’s move it into our hearts. Let’s put action to our knowledge. Let’s share the Good News—a King has come to set us free!
