Consider Jesus: Counselor

Let us continue to “consider Jesus.” (Heb. 3:1) 

IsaIsa. 9:6“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”

Jesus is the greatest advisor that has ever been. His words have faithfully guided more men in times of trouble than any other. His teaching was so profound that none could argue with it and it amazed all who heard it. After the Sermon on the Mount it says, “when Jesus had finished these words, the multitudes were amazed at His teaching.” (Matt. 7:28) When he preached in Nazareth it says, “He began teaching them in their synagogue, so that they became astonished, and said, “Where did this man get this wisdom?” (Matt. 13:54)  Jesus was so effective in His teaching that Mark records, “for all the multitude was astonished at His teaching.” (11:18)

Whenever we are in any need of encouragement or counselor, we should turn to the best and mightiest of teachers and consider His words. We should consider all the words of the God’s chosen and anointed One.
