Light for My Path Daily Devotion
It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many peoples shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. (Isaiah 2:2-4 ESV)
Hymn ELH 139: 1,5 Once in Royal David’s City
Once in royal David’s city
Stood a lowly cattle shed
Where a mother laid her Baby
In a manger for His bed.
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little Child.
Not in that poor lowly stable
With the oxen standing by
We shall see Him, but in heaven,
Set at God’s right hand on high;
Where, like stars, His children, crowned,
All in white shall wait around.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for the precious gift of Your only-begotten Son, who came to bring us back together with You through His perfect life and death. Bring to all the peace which only faith in Christ can give. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
