God's work and human failures

Sphere: Related Content

"The book of the ancestry (genealogy) of Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the son (descendant) of David, the son (descendant) of Abraham............So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen, from David to the Babylonian exile (deportation) fourteen generations, from the Babylonian exile to the Christ fourteen generations." (Mathew 1:1-17)

A chronicle of the human lineage of Jesus Christ. His 'human ancestors" had different experiences and personalities. Some are well known for their faith (Abraham, Ruth David); while some are just ordinary everyday day folks (Hezron, Ram); yet others had real bad reputation (Manasseh, Tamar, Rehab, Ahija).

Lesson: God's work have never and never will be limited by human failures and frailties. He works with ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things. He offers you a second chance to surrender and be used of Him. Now what has God accomplished through and with you?
