We're beginning the second month. My prayer is that you are gaining new understanding from God's Word and that the Holy Spirit is speaking to your hearts.
Matthew chapter one is mailing the genealogy of Jesus. One of the things I love about the chapter is the fact that new non-Jewish WOMEN are mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus, the Messiah. I think it reminds us that although the Jews were God's chosen people, we were always part of His plan. There is a passage in Genesis where God tells Abraham that all people will be touched through him. (Sorry I don't remember the exact chapter and verse).
