“The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham:”
I love the details that the Bible gives to help us more fully understand and appreciate our relationship with the Lord. Matthew records the genealogy of Jesus; showing His human lineage. Jesus is the Son of Man and the Son of God. As the son of David, He relates to our temptations and what it’s like to be in human skin – to hurt, feel pain, and weep. As Hebrews 4:15 says, “we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.” If you feel like no one knows what you’re going through, think again. Jesus does. And, He loves you and sympathizes with you in your struggles and sufferings. You are not alone.
Son of David, we adore and praise You for willingly leaving Your heavenly home to put on flesh, live among us, and die for us. Thank You for being with us and never leaving us.
