SCRIPTURE READING:
Matthew 1:1

This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham

SIGNIFICANCE:
The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the promised Jew to bless all people.

Dear Father, I praise You that Jesus Christ is the Son of Abraham (and the Son of David). It is exciting to know that Abraham was the first Jewish leader (the great ancient prophet and priest) from whom it was prophesied that the Messiah would descend, according to Genesis 22:15-18, “The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time and said, ‘I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on the earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.’” Hallelujah, that Jesus is that offspring Who would “bless all nations on the earth,” as Messiah and Savior. I thank You for the perfect plan You and He had before Abraham was born, before the beginning of time, to sow the seed of the God-Man into the royal line of the Jewish nation, then to fulfill Your plan through His life, death, resurrection and ascension many generations later. I devote myself totally to Him and to His advancing kingdom. May His followers of our day eagerly know Him more, love Him with all our hearts, speak of His greatness with one another, and worship Him without ceasing. I ask these things in the name of the blessed Son of Abraham. Amen.
