From Abraham to Exile

Matthew 1:2–11

Not every ancestor of Jesus trusted in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Still, the Lord’s grace overcame what could be called “impossible” odds in working through the sinful sons of David to bring about our salvation. This grace seeks out even the most wicked person and calls God’s chosen to repentance, even if they are as vile as Manasseh or as lost as Rahab. Our status as Christ’s brothers and sisters (Heb. 2:11) comes only by such almighty grace.
