Sinners and God's Grace
Topic: Advent Passage: Matthew 1:1–1:6
During the Christmas season we work and rush to make many things look good. The house, the tree, the lights, the family picture - it can be a slavish pursuit of perfection. The genealogy of Jesus in Matthew 1 shows us that perfection belongs to Jesus only. His family tree is full of mismatches, brokenness, and amazing grace. While we rush to present well and perform to perfection, Jesus offers us rest from the pressure.
