The Christmas story is about heaven embracing earth in all of its beauty and ugliness. It is a story of a God who comes to the earth to let us know we are not alone in this world. In fact, there is a God who is intimately involved in our lives. On this podcast, we look at Matthew 1 and the geology of Jesus. God doesn’t do anything by mistake. Everything God does is with intention and purpose. When we read the geology of Jesus we quickly realize that God’s lineage is not one of all Kings, royalty, or even prestige. His family line is full of broken, messed up people who many made horrible choices with their lives. Yet, here is God, putting himself in the same lineage that many would think are unredeemable. What God is communicating is he embraces ALL of us, even our messed up broken lives. Be encouraged, you are not outside the embrace of God’s loving, gracious, merciful, forgiving arms.
