11/03 Matthew 1:17
All those listed above include fourteen generations from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile, and fourteen from the Babylonian exile to the Messiah.
These were real people who lived real lives. Many of them believed the Lord and believed He was coming. By faith they knew Him and by faith they believed Him. Our faith is the same kind of faith: We believe that Jesus is Lord, that He died for the forgiveness of our sin and was raised from the dead by the Father, was seen by more than 500 and is seated at the right hand of the Father preparing for His return at this very moment. Come Lord Jesus.
