Advent Reading for today: Dec 2

I’m putting together the advent verses/readings for our house’s advent calendar project. (still in the works) Here is the passage I selected for today. Totally digging the Message version of this passage and that it tied into the message at Soul City tonight on the Genealogy of Christ in Matthew 1.

Isaiah 11:1-2,10 (MSG)

 A green Shoot will sprout from Jesse’s stump,
from his roots a budding Branch.
The life-giving Spirit of God will hover over him,
the Spirit that brings wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit that gives direction and builds strength,
the Spirit that instills knowledge and Fear-of-God.

v10: On that day, Jesse’s Root will be raised high, posted as a rallying banner for the peoples. The nations will all come to him. His headquarters will be glorious.
