Nate Furness: " The Lion and The Lamb"
Now that Thanksgiving has finished, we can turn our attention to the Christmas holiday. We will begin to play Christmas music, decorate our homes, and start thinking about the gifts we will give and receive. December is a month of expectation. As Christians, we call this time of expecting, Advent. It is the time of year we are reminded that Jesus is coming. Advent culminates on Christmas Day, where we encounter the Nativity of Jesus. As you prepare for the coming holiday, make space and time to acknowledge that we are waiting and hoping for the only gift that matters, Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 2:1-10, NIV
1 The word that Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2 In days to come the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; all the nations shall stream to it. 3 Many peoples shall come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4 He shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 5 O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the LORD! 6 The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. 7 The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. 8 The infant will play near the cobra’s den, the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest. 9 They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. 10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious.
