The Righteous Branch

Thoughts by Pastor Brad...

Jeremiah 33:15-16 shares; “In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line; he will do what is just and right in the land.  16 In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will live in safety.  This is the name by which it will be called:  ‘The Lord Our Righteous Savior.’”  Jeremiah was talking about the impending 70-year captivity of Judah for their sins.  He prophesied that there would be a remnant that would return and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and the temple.  More importantly, Jeremiah prophesied that the Messiah, the Righteous Branch, Jesus our Savior would come into this world and save us from our sins.  Are you leaning on the Righteous Branch this morning for everything?  It is vitally important to step on sturdy branches when climbing trees.  It is essential that You stand on the Righteous Branch when moving upward on higher ground in your walk with God.  Praise God for Jesus, the Righteous Branch that will never break and will keep us from falling.
