Isaiah knew what he was talking about . . .

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;
from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

Isaiah 11:1

The theme of this first week of Advent is HOPE. This is most clearly seen in the words of the Prophets who spoke throughout the Old Testament about the coming of the Messiah. Isaiah paints a picture of the Messiah's lineage and gives a hopeful message of His work here on Earth.

CHALLENGE: Read the rest of Isaiah 11 and see if that gets you motivated to work on your "Jesse Tree."
