2023 Advent - Day 11



As you prepare yourself for worship, listen to the following song, and sing along if you know it: "Matthew Begats" by Andrew Peterson 

As you worship, meditate on the lineage of Jesus. 


Read the following passage: Isaiah 11: 1-10

 As you study, consider the Old Testament promise of the Messiah being the Root of Jesse. Then, answer the questions below to dive deeper!

Reflection Questions: 

  • How does this passage offer hope for a better future?
  • How do these images reflect the promises of God?
  • What assurance or encouragement do God's promises provide for us today?
  • Why do you think Isaiah talked about a 'shoot from the stump of Jesse' and animals like wolves and lambs being friends?
  • How might these ideas make us think about Christmas and the baby Jesus in a special way?"


Lord, we thank You for continually filling us with a knowledge of You through Your Holy Spirit! We praise You for Your role as the Root of Jesse, and for the way the Gospel is woven throughout Your entire lineage.
