Jeremiah 33:14-16

On this first day of Advent we read a selection from the Prophet Jeremiah concerning the coming Messiah.  The Prophet offers a reminder that the days are coming.  In other words, don’t be discouraged, the days are coming.  God has not forgotten His promises and He hasn’t forgotten you.  The days are coming for God to fulfill His promise.  God always fulfills His promises.

God had promised to the houses of Israel and Judah that a righteous branch to spring up for David.  David’s “branch” or ancestor in David’s family tree, will arrive to execute justice and righteousness in the land.  It is through the line of David that justice and righteousness will be fulfilled.

In those days there will be salvation, peace, and righteousness.  We recognize that Jesus is this branch in the family tree of David who has come to bring salvation, peace, justice, and righteousness.  Jesus is Savior of the world.  God kept His promise in the best way by sending his very own Son.

We celebrate the coming of Christ.  We celebrate the salvation he brings.  We celebrate justice, peace, and righteousness.  We also celebrate that God keeps promises.  This year while we celebrate Christ’s coming, we also celebrate God’s promise that Christ will return in all his glory.
