In today’s first reading from Jeremiah, the prophet foretells of the coming of the Messiah. Jeremiah teaches us that the savior will be descended from King David, and will fulfill the promises that God made to his chosen people.
The days are coming, says the LORD,
when I will fulfill the promise
I made to the house of Israel and Judah.
In those days, in that time,
I will raise up for David a just shoot ;
he shall do what is right and just in the land.
In those days Judah shall be safe
and Jerusalem shall dwell secure;
this is what they shall call her:
“The LORD our justice.”
What are the promises that Jesus has kept in your life? Think about those things and give praise to the One who gave everything away so that we can enter into full communion with our Father in Heaven.
Come, Lord Jesus!
