Go for the Branch, Not the Thorns


Have you ever had something grow in your yard and you didn’t know if it was a flower or a weed? That’s happened to me. The same can happen with people or books that make flowery spiritual promises. The problem is, if they’re not rooted in Christ, the  flowery show will fade and the false empty promises end up being thorns to the soul . Jeremiah 23:5 announces the righteous BRANCH, Jesus Christ, whom we can trust. “‘Behold, the days are coming,’ declares the Lord, when I shall raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.’” Jesus is the One to whom we want to be grafted for this life and eternity.

BRANCH of the LORD, who lives forever, thank You for giving us true, eternal life.
