Today’s reading tells us about the Baptism and Genealogy of Jesus in Luke 3:26.
26 the son of Maath,
the son of Mattathias, the son of Semein,
the son of Josek, the son of Joda,
Luke 3:26 is a testament to Christ’s humanity. The verse lists five of the patriarchs of the human line that Jesus descended from. The truth is that we all are descended from God and we can consider Jesus our brother because God created Adam and Eve to start the human race. Though we have displeased God with our fallen ways he has never forsaken us, and he continues the human race even with our flaws. In fact, when we recognize that he has redeemed us through Jesus’s sacrifice it shows that we are special to God and if we recognize his redemption our lives have true meaning.
Let us pray: Heavenly Father thank-you for your blessings of life and the forgiveness of our sins. We ask that you guide to help further your word to those we meet along our journeys.
