Isaiah: The Real Christmas Tree (A Stump)
Topic: Advent Passage: Isaiah 11:1–11:10
Today we continue in the season of Advent with looking at Isaiah 11. As we do we see that Isaiah did not have a Christmas tree, but a stump with a single shoot growing from it. That is a real Christmas tree according to Isaiah, but why? It is a picture of the promised Messiah, the Christ, a Savior that will be King. He is the Eternal Son of God who will come as a child born into the world in the obscure town of Bethlehem. He is the signal to the world. A signal of love and hope. Let us all be drawn to the shoot of Jesse this Christmas.
