Sunday Morning, December 9th, 2018 - The People of His Coming - Pastor Jared Shumate
Have you ever researched your family genealogy? People love exploring the roots of their ancestors and seeing just how far back they can trace their lineage.
The book of Matthew does this for Jesus Christ. Beginning with Adam, we see in the scripture all 14 generations that led to our Savior. In fact, you can go back one more generation, to the 15th, where God created Adam. It's the only lineage that began with God and ultimately ended with Him as well.
Many of those people are unknown other than their names being listed in these verses. We have a hard time pronouncing their names. You've probably never heard of them. Maybe no one ever heard of those names even when they were living. They are the forgotten generations of Jesus.
But there's good news! God never forgot them, and He'll never forget you either! Sometimes you may feel forgotten among men. But, take comfort in knowing that the God of Heaven will NEVER forget you!
