Read Isaiah 2:1-5


Read Isaiah 2:1-5

This is the message which God gave to Isaiah son of Amoz about Judah and Jerusalem:
2     In days to come
the mountain where the Temple stands
will be the highest one of all,
towering above all the hills.
Many nations will come streaming to it,
3           and their people will say,
“Let us go up the hill of the Lord,d
to the Temple of Israel’s God.
He will teach us what he wants us to do;
we will walk in the paths he has chosen.
For the Lord’s teaching comes from Jerusalem;
from Zion he speaks to his people.”
4     He will settle disputes among great nations.
They will hammer their swords into ploughs
and their spears into pruning knives.
Nations will never again go to war,
never prepare for battle again.
5 Now, descendants of Jacob, let us walk in the light which the Lord gives us! [1]

Think

As we speak of expectation – as we look forward to the coming of King Jesus:
Out of Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Jesus has shown us the way of peace, but we keep on fighting.

Pray

Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven.
