He Shall Execute Justice and Righteousness in the Land

Christ True Vine

“He shall execute justice and righteousness in the land”. Is this a condemnation or a cheerful message? When we see “justice” and “execute” together, that usually means someone came to a bad end. But in this case, they form one of the most joyous messages for us!

Christ executed justice – he took it from an idea, through action, to accomplished fact – for all of mankind. He took our place, suffered the condemnation for our sins and with that, he also made us righteous in His sight.

The Lord promised these things to happen through the prophet Jeremiah and we have the joy of seeing exactly how that promise was executed.

We are justified, we are loved, and we are made righteous.

Here is today’s full sermon text from Jeremiah 33:

14 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 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. 16 In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And this is the name by which it will be called: ‘The Lord is our righteousness.’
