::Devotional:: ‘A Record of God’s Sovereignty’

May 7, 2010

Isn’t it almost logical to think that the ancestors of Jesus would have been the best of the best?  The ones with the most faith, righteousness, and spiritual maturity.  Almost like a thoroughbred stallion where only the best of the blood line is kept together to promote the purest offspring.  But that’s not the case.

Some of Jesus’ ancestors were the best of the best, some were the worst of the worst, and some were simply in between.  The line contains heroes of the faith like Abraham, Isaac, Ruth and Josiah.  It also contains some of the most evil men in all of scripture like Manasseh and Abijah.  Women of low reputations like Rahab and Tamar were contributors to the genealogy of Jesus.

This varied genealogy of Jesus is a testimony to the sovereignty of God.  Only a sovereign God, one who has absolute rule over the wicked and the righteous, could use such a diverse group of people to accomplish His will of sending His only begotten Son to save that which was lost; mankind.

The LORD has established his throne in heaven; his kingdom extends over everything.  Psalm 103:19

Remember, God sends rain on the just and the unjust and causes the sun to rise for both.  Take comfort in knowing that God is in control and that His will, will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Praise be to God!

-Stay Rooted Col. 2:7-
