THE PROMISE REMAINS

"Joseph was the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus. Jesus is called the Christ."

MATTHEW 1:16 NCV

Seems like the only common bond between [Jesus’ not-so-great grandparents] was a promise. A promise from heaven that God would use them to send his Son.

Why did God use these people? Didn’t have to. Could have just laid the Savior on a doorstep. Would have been simpler that way. And why does God tell us their stories? . . .

Simple. . . . He wants us to know that when the world goes wild, he stays calm.

Want proof? Read the last name on the list [of Jesus’ lineage]. In spite of all the crooked halos and tasteless gambols of his people, the last name on the list is the first one promised—Jesus. No more names are listed. No more are needed. As if God is announcing to a doubting world, “See, I did it. Just like I said I would.”

(Max Lucado, When God Whispers Your Name)
