Today's ornament represents the Prophecy of the Lion and Lamb Resting Together, found in Isaiah 11:6-10. The devotional passage for adults in the book also highlighted passages from Matthew 25:31-46, Revelation 21:1-7, and Phillippians 2:9-11. As we read the scriptures tonight, the verses from Philippians especially reminded me of the song, "Oh Holy Night," which we sang in our Christmas Worship services at Grace this weekend.
"Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father."
Fall on your knees . . . behold your King . . . before Him lowly bend . . . Christ is the Lord, oh praise His name forever, His power and glory evermore proclaim!
