The Root of Jesse, Day 9

“The Root of Jesse, Day 9” (3 panels)
Isaiah 11:9
©️2020 by Gloria M. Chang

They shall not harm or destroy on all my holy mountain;
for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the Lord,
as water covers the sea.

Isaiah 11:9

Reign of Peace

When knowledge of the Lord fills the earth, violent and destructive forces will be quelled within hearts conquered by Christ. But since the kingdom of God is already “within” and “among” us (Luke 17:21), may we enthrone Christ in our hearts and homes today.

“But the wisdom from above is first of all pure, then peaceable,
gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits,
without inconstancy or insincerity.”

James 3:17

  1. Dear GMC, Thank you for your reflection. It reminds us that in the Messiah’s kingdom there is no hate, fear, cruelty or danger, but perfect peace and harmony. People truly know who God is, and therefore they no longer do evil to each other. Glory to you, O Lord.
