You are the Branch

Tuesday 29 November

The fabulous image of God’s kingdom, perhaps in the future, perhaps possible even in the present, is dreamed in Isaiah 11.1-10. From the ‘mountain’ of peaceful coexistence, even between wild animals, to the picture of the messiah perfect and beautiful. But what if this passage was a blueprint of your perfection and beauty? What if this passage is a challenge to your way of living as Christian.
Question: What sits comfortably for me as an individual and what grates?
Jesus you are of the ‘stock of Jesse’. How can I be your branch today? As I dwell on Isaiah 11 give me grace to recognise the kingdom marks in me. Amen
