Good Government

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6, NKJV

What comes to your mind when you hear the word “government?” Most people think about laws, politicians, taxes, and debates. Few people think about Jesus. When the Bible says the government will be upon His shoulder, it means that one day Jesus will reign on His throne perfectly forever. Christians who like to gripe about the government must do so in the ugly here and now, for they will have no such opportunity in the sweet by and by. No one is ever impeached in heaven. There are no attack ads. There is no gridlock. There are no elections. A King born two thousand years ago is coming back, and when He does, there will be peace.
