Genealogy of Christ through Joseph, Part 2 - Matthew 1:12-17

At the conclusion of almost every episode of the television series, The A Team, Hannibal Smith always grinned and said, “I love it when a plan comes together.” Matthew chapter one is the culmination of God’s plan for salvation from sin finally descending to earth. The list of murderers, adulterers, liars, idolaters, thieves, etc. goes on and on. But, just as with all things, God created perfection out of imperfection. His flawless timing brought to earth the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy found in Isaiah 11:10: “In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious.”

Rest in the glory of God’s perfect plan and trust that what he says, he will do.
