A child will lead them

Monday December 10th, Isaiah 11: All of humanity will pay attention. A mere breath of the Spirit of God will topple the wicked. Each morning the Spirit will work alongside the children of God to help build righteousness and faithfulness in the land. In this newness we will see things we have never seen before. The wolf will romp with the lamb, the leopard sleep with the kid, Calf and lion will eat from the same trough, and a little child will tend them. All of humanity will pay attention. Peace, God’s plan for all of humanity will prevail. The image of wolf and lamb together is the image of peace beyond even the innate desires within us. As we prepare for the coming of the Christ child, we look forward to the day when the spirit will blow over the land and Peace will prevail. No more will our sons and daughters go fight wars and kill so a few can have the oil rights, the land rights, the power rights, the water rights, and the money that goes with it. The babe whose birth we soon celebrate died at the hands of such power and rose again to put an end the influence such power has over us, real or perceived. We are called this Advent season to follow where the child will lead us, to God’s vision for our life, God’s vision for our land, God’s vision of adversaries sharing the same trough in peace lead by the little child, Immanuel, God with us.
