Advent Begins November 29 and Devotionals Are Now Available!
“Praying the Jesse Tree” – Written by Pastor Deb Grant
On Bench Outside Office in Ziplock Bag
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: and the spirit of the lord shall rest upon him. Isaiah 11: 1-2
“The symbol of the Jesse Tree comes from this passage in the Book of Isaiah. Each leaf on the tree is a story rooted deep in Scripture that tells of the relationship between God and God’s people. The symbols on the Jesse Tree represent a Biblical “family tree” and Christ is grafted onto the family tree of Jesse, the father of the great King David. Use these devotions each day during the season of Advent. Read the Scripture passage first to understand the devotion for the day more fully….As you are reminded each day how we are all part of this family tree, may you also be reminded of the powerful love of Christ for this our family.”
