Description

In a world of barren forests and stumps, one stump bears fruit. There is a king from the root of Jesse who came in true humility. He was filled with the Spirit and lead with wisdom, counsel, strength, and the knowledge and fear of God. In a world of conflict, suffering, and despair, we need this message of hope: that the promised root of Jesse is Jesus Christ. In his baptism, we see that the Spirit rested on him. In his life, we see him as the perfect leader whom we long to be led by. He welcomed children and outcasts, judging hearts and not the superficial, in truth without favouritism. There is hope in no other name but in Jesus Christ.
Yet, we must also remember that the ultimate picture of Isaiah 11, where prey and predators play with one another, is a picture of heaven, not earth. Here, we are creatures with corrupt desires who fight and destroy one another. In heaven the wolf and lamb will play together, the lion and calf will both eat grass, and children will play with snakes...
