Ancient Words of Hope

A reading for Monday, November 14, 2016: Isaiah 11:1-9.

Our hope for the future comes "from the stump of Jesse."

It is "the branch from the root of that tree" upon which hangs our love for our neighbors.

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon him" gives us faith.

"The spirit of wisdom and understanding" affords us comfort.

"The spirit of counsel and might" strengthens our resolve.

"The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord" is our witness to the world.

Because "His delight shall be in the fear of the Lord," our delight is the same.

These ancient words from Isaiah are the foundation of our trust and belief in Jesus Christ who is our Savior. In these words, and none other, we place our hope. These ancient words of hope are enough to change the world...

By the way, for Nashville friends, join us at HPC, 5820 Hillsboro Pike, at 6:30pm tonight for a Prayer Service of Unity. All are welcome!
