Episode 402

TODAY’S READING:

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Matthew 1:1

 

4 Days of Advent. 24 Names of Jesus, and I knew this was an important name to review. Jesus was called the Son of David a few times. The verse we just read is the first verse in the book of Matthew. Later on, we read.

 

And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.”

Matthew 9:27

 

And then again in Matthew 22:42, we read: Saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.”

 

So the question is, why?

 

We know that David was the chosen King of Israel. God sent Samuel to find David and appoint him king when he was only 15 years old.

 

What I love about the Bible is how intentional God has always been. There was genealogy and a connection between Abraham and David, and Matthew highlights the full list of names so that you can see how David is tied to Jesus.

 

This is critical information because the people of the time would have known scripture, they would have known what was written in the old estimate, and they would have known of the messianic promise God made with David:

 

12 When your days are over, and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise your offspring to succeed you, your flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.

2 Samuel 7:12-13

 

Jesus is the Son of David solidifies that He was the Messiah. That is so powerful. He is our Christ. He is the one we praise when things go our way and when they don’t. He is the one we lean on, in sickness and in health. In the valley and on the mountain top. He is the one who came down for us.

 

PRAYER

Jesus, we love how every word spoken doesn’t go in vain. Everything from Abraham to David to your son Jesus was done with precision and for a reason. It is through that testimony that we know you are working every detail for our God. Lord, you are in it, and we don’t even see it, but we don’t have to see it to believe it. So we thank you for all that you are doing. We love you with everything in us, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
