The Christmas Code - December 1, 2022

Updated: Dec 2, 2022

ROOTS: A Christmas Gift


The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ... And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.

Matthew 1:1, 16


There is no one like you. You are unique. No one has a fingerprint like yours, a DNA that exactly matches yours. Roots are important, and not just to plants. Your DNA shows what proclivities you may have regarding disease, intellect, temperament, and so much more.


There are forty-seven names listed in Matthew 1, most unpronounceable. Some are great, some not so great. From paupers to princes, shepherds to slaves, kings to harlots, spanning twenty-one centuries of human experience, the list ends in a stable on a starlit night with one name that is above every other name: Jesus!


The family tree of our Lord does not end with His ancestors, because His descendants - you and I - have been born again into His forever family.


CODE WORD: ROOTS


Can you tell me the full name of your great-grandfather? Or anything about his life? Chances are your own children's grandchildren will not even know you name. What really matters is this: are your true roots in Jesus' family tree?


................................................................................................................................................


Lord, may I be more concerned this season about being on Your list than on any other Christmas invitaion list.

In Jesus' name, amen.
