NAMES OF GOD

Jeremiah 23:6

 

In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this [is] his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
 

LESSON

 

Jeremiah just announced that none of Coniah’s descendants would ever rule as kings. Now he went on to clarify that a Davidic King would rule in the future. God was not cutting off the Davidic line. Jeremiah 23 says that Jehovah our Righteousness will arise out of the branch of David. In Revelation 22 Jesus said He was the Root and the offspring of David.

 

God promised his people a leader who would lead them faithfully, giving them a righteousness that would make them right before God. Jesus is our righteousness. He paid the price for our sins on that cruel cross. In return He gave us His righteousness as a gift. We stand before God covered with the pure and perfect Righteousness of Jesus: the Good Shepherd and the Righteous King.
