God Fulfills God’s Promises

Fourth Sunday in Advent, Year B, Old Testament

Scripture: 2 Samuel 7:1-11; 16

Today’s Scripture comes once from the Old Testament book of 2 Samuel. In today’s story, God makes a covenant with David, promising that David’s offspring would continue to lead and rule Israel long after his death. The line of David would last for many, many years. We see this covenant fulfilled in the birth and life of Jesus, who comes from the house and the line of King David. This story reminds us that when God makes a covenant with us, God lives up to it. God always fulfills God’s promises.
