A family tree is an interesting and informative record that shows family relationships throughout many generations. Digging into your family history might reveal that you are related to presidents, kings or next door neighbors.
The Bible is full of these kinds of family history. Many genealogies tell the story of God's faithfulness from generation to generation. In Luke 3:23 we see that Jesus Christ, the only begotten of God, enters into human history and all the recorded genealogies of the Bible abruptly stop.
These records stop because our connection to God is no longer through our human ancestry but through Jesus. When we are in Christ we are connected to God and part of His family.
John 1:12–13 says, “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God — children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will but born of God.”
Thank God that we've been included in God's family through Christ Jesus. We have been born into this spiritual family not based on our parent's faith but based on our believing and receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. When we read a genealogy in the Bible our hearts should be encouraged. God has entered our story and now we get the opportunity to be part of His family and His story.
