Praise Thursday: Matthew 1 – The Genealogy of Jesus

The New Testament begins in Matthew 1 with what’s called ” the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah.” Have you ever wondered why?

Matthew’s gospel doesn’t begin with the Nativity itself… The star, the shepherds in the manger. Instead, It begins with a long list of ancestry. And let’s be honest – how many times have we skipped through this?

In his book, Hidden Christmas, Pastor Timothy Keller gives us perspective on why Matthew started the story of Jesus this way. He reminds us that Christmas is not just about a birth, it is about a coming.

The birth of the Son of God into the world is a gospel, a good news, an announcements that says, you don’t have to save yourself – God has come to save you. Of course, Christmas is just the beginning of the story of how God came to save us. Jesus will have to go to the Cross. But you begin with Christ by reading this report about what has happened in history. Matthew tells here that this story is no fairy tale – Jesus is real!

Matthew doesn’t start his book with “Once Upon a Time.” That is the way fairy tales or legendary fantasy stories begin. Matthew is grounding who Jesus Christ is and what he does in history with the genealogy. Keller reminds us in Matthew 1, we learn that Jesus is not a metaphor – he is real. This all happened!

In this genealogy at the beginning of the New Testament, what else is Matthew saying? Pastor Keller writes that the list of Jesus’ genealogy is also a type of resume. In those times, your family, pedigree, and clan made up your resume. Therefore, this list is really saying, “This is who Jesus is.”

Matthew’s genealogy is shockingly different from the other ones of his time. First, there are five women in the list. Three of them. Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth are Gentiles. The Jews would have considered them unclean. In fact, Tamar was a prostitute. He also refers to “Uriah’s wife,”  who you may know as Bathsheba. These names recall some of the most difficult stories is in the Old Testament. Yet, they are in Jesus’s genealogy. Why?

But wait, in verse 6 we have the name King David. So, we might think “now there is somebody we want in out genealogy!” David, after all, was the boy who killed Goliath, favored by Saul, anointed as king, and the man who conquers Jerusalem.  David also was a flawed man, who arranged the killing of his friend Uriah and whose son Solomon was the result of an affair with Bathsheba. Yet out of that deeply flawed man, the Messiah came.  These people are all acknowledged in Matthew 1 as the ancestors of Jesus.

 So what does that mean? Tim Keller asks us to think about it this way :

 It means that people who are excluded by culture, society and even by the laws God can be brought into Jesus’s family. If you repent and believe in him, the grace of Jesus covers your sin and unites you with him.

Moreover, with King David, it means even the powerful and great are still in need of the grace of Christ. It is not what you have done; it is what Christ has done for you!

God is not ashamed of us. We are all in his family.

Cultivating Character over Charisma and Choosing Words Carefully  

Here are today’s devotionals:

Cultivating Character over Charisma 

1 Peter 3:3-4 (NIV)

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornments, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”

What would happen in your spiritual life if you spent as much time on your soul as you do grooming, exercising, or however else you maintain yourself? Let us be clear, those things are important, to an extent, but they will fade with time. Your spirit, however, will live forever. Your character is a road map to where you have been and where you are going. Let it point you to the throne of God for it will also serve as a guide to those who follow you.

Choose Carefully the Words you Speak 

Proverbs 18:21  (NIV)

“The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Have you ever considered how your words affect those who follow you? Your words have the power to destroy their confidence or build them up to be stronger than they are. Those whom you lead look to you for guidance, Love, and emotional support to cope with living in today’s world. Choose your words carefully. The impression you make will greatly impact your followers. People need to know they are loved by some here on earth as well as their heavenly father. Give the gift of encouragement every day.

Click HERE for a list of 100 verses about the power of words.

Do you want some Texas Road House for dinner tomorrow? Maybe you want to play some carnival games and have a chance to win some door prizes and have a chance to give to a great cause??? Well, then Flannel Fest is the event you want to be at tomorrow evening! If you want more information or want to register, click HERE.
