For to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be on his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful…
Christ is our Counsellor upon a threefold account —
1. As He hath rectified our notions of the Deity and turned us from the worship of dumb idols, to serve the living and true God.
2. As He hath taught us the truths of the moral law, and the real difference between good and evil.
3. As He hath instructed us in the means whereby we may obtain everlasting salvation.
(W. Reading, M. A.)
