Devotion for December 15

Jeremiah 23:5-6

5 “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The LORD Our Righteous Savior.

Jesus has risen and is now our advocate. God’s plans for his people are for those who call him Lord to be obedient even unto death. To love your neighbor so that this place we call earth can have peace. We are God’s children but also His representatives. Jesus is called the Prince of peace and we are His army go and protect the name of the Lord.
