Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Root and Offspring of David
    I am the Root and the Offspring of David.
    Revelation 22:16
    Jesus is the Root and Offspring of David, the greatest king of Israel. Just as a tree gets strength and life from its roots, so David’s accomplishments and strength came from Jesus. Just as David derived everything from Jesus, so your spiritual vitality comes from Him. You were born again when Christ came into your heart, so your spiritual life comes from Him.
    Lord, I know that my spiritual life comes from You; help me never to forget where my strength lies.
    Jesus is the Root and Offspring of David. Jesus was not only David’s source of strength, but He also was born into David’s line. Jesus has the legitimate title to David’s throne. Because of being born in the line of David, Jesus is qualified to fulfill all the Messianic prophecies for the salvation of every Israelite and for the nation as a whole. Look to Him for all your needs. Jesus is the Root and Offspring of David, which means that He was the “Son of David” (Matthew 1:1). When David wrote the Psalms, he called the coming Messiah “the Lord” (Psalm 110:1 & 5). Just as Jesus was the Lord of David, so He wants to be your Lord. Will you submit to Him today?
    Lord, You are the Root from which I get my life; I am Your offspring. But more important, You are my Lord; I will serve You this day. Amen.
