“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6
When you Google “Michael Jordan”, his list of nicknames pops up along with his statistics and accomplishments. For instance, you’ll see “His Airness”, “Air Jordan”, and “the GOAT” to name a few. One nickname lends to his ability to hang in the air for basically days, or at least long enough to reach the rim from the free throw line; another lends to the fact that he is widely considered the greatest basketball player of all time; and, finally, the third is simply a nickname no one else will ever have. They’re impressive monikers for sure, but they certainly pale in comparison to the following monikers: Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting Father, and of course Mighty God. One of these individuals has entertained thousands if not millions of people. The other has saved them all – and then some.
