the one from God

I like the way Luke states Jesus’ genealogy. He traces Jesus’ ancestry all the way back to Eden, and draws a comparison between the one from God who was put in the garden, and the one from God who was put in a manger. Jesus’ human ancestry is important to remember because it links him to us. It shows what God had in mind all along. Our Saviour is one of us, so he can make a difference for us. Our God has a solution for the problem of sin, and a plan for the destiny of humanity.

LORD, thank you for your provision of Christ, the one from God.
