Isaiah 11:1-9 (NIV)

Isaiah 11:1-9 (The Message)

This Sunday we begin the Advent Season once again.  We anticipate the birth of Jesus and consider the meaning of his birth.

Here in Isaiah we find out why Jesus came into the world: to bring Wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and fear of the Lord, righteousness, justice, and enduring peace.  Clearly our world needs all of this and more.

Read through Isaiah 11 today and give thanks for Jesus.  As we prepare to celebrate his birth, anticipate his coming again to complete the transformation described by Isaiah.
