Isaiah 11:1 - “ A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a branch will bear fruit”
A major aspect of the hope we have in Jesus is that He redeems us from our own self-destructive sin, habits, and inclinations. Like the Israelites, Jesus brings life where there was once only death—and death which we brought upon ourselves. In meditating on Christ’s redemption in your own life, consider these questions:
Where might I be today if not for the redemption of Christ in my life?
Do I adore and worship Jesus for His redeeming work?
How can I use His redemption in my life to communicate Christ to those I know?
My prayer for you today is that you are filled with hope and joy because Christ loves you, redeems you, and gives you His life where sin and death once reigned.
