day 22: lover king

Jeremiah 23:5-6; Matthew 1:1; Revelation 22:16-21

“Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.  In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness.’” – Jeremiah 23:5-6

“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” – Matthew 1:1

“‘I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.’  The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.” – Revelation 22:16-17


david.  shepherd.  poet.  adulterer.  murderer.  temporal king.  beloved.

Jesus.  ShepherdCreatorRoot (Source).  Branch (Effect).  Eternal King.  Lover.

me.  sheep.  poem.  sinner.  saint.  heir.  beloved.


how can we embrace and live out of the fact that “The LORD is our righteousness”?   God showed faithful love to david, now Christ invites us into The Kingdom; will we receive and reign with Him or refuse and be reigned over?  will we drink the water of life without price or will we drink from broken cisterns that can hold no water?

thank you Lord that you are Loving King
