READ – Jeremiah 33:14–16
33:14 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
33:15 In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
33:16 In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: “The LORD is our righteousness.”
Theological imagination is not speculative, but relies on God’s continuous presence and acts on behalf of creation over time. trusting in God’s provision for us in the past, we imagine what shape God’s ful llment of promises will take in the future. although we do not bring about God’s intended alternative future through sheer force of will, in our waiting we do try to place ourselves in a posture so that we might become partners with God in the advent of a new reality. – Jennifer Ryan Ayres
Prayer – Help me to slow down during this busy season so that I can imagine what your promises look like coming true in my life and in the world. Thank you Jesus for being my hope.
What partnership is God inviting you to participate in this advent?
