Devotion for Wednesday after the First Sunday in Advent

You have said, “I have made a covenant 
with my chosen one;
I have sworn to David my servant:
‘I will establish your offspring forever,
and build your throne for all generations.’”
~ Psalm 89:3-4

Centuries before He put His plan into action, God promised to David that His offspring would sit on the throne forever. The people of that day expected a monarchy over their people that would never end, but God had something even more wonderful in mind. He sent His own Son into the world as a tiny baby born in the human line of David to die for our sins to give us eternal life with Him. Jesus, fully man and fully God, human descendant of King David, will rule all the people for eternity. The ones who love and trust in Him will live in glory, love, and peace, and those who reject Him will suffer eternal punishment.

Lord God Almighty, thank You for extending the rule of King David’s offspring from just the Jews to everyone, everywhere, always. Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. In His name I pray. Amen.

Note: These devotions are also available in print and e-reader formats.
