Christmas with God’s Family | Week 2 | Matthew 1.1-17Series: Advent Series: Christmas with God's Family
Once Upon A Time…
No, that’s not how Matthew begins his gospel. He begins, “A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ…” There’s a difference as big as eternity. This weekend, we won’t skip over the genealogy. We’ll slow down and let God the Spirit teach us through it. Matthew includes five women in his genealogy—mothers of Jesus, in a way. But who they are might surprise you. And who knows what God might teach you about yourself and your place in his kingdom through them. God’s family will gather at St. Andrew three times this weekend to pray for each other, confess our sin together, receive absolution together, greet one another, encourage one another, praise our God together, learn from his Word together, sing together, listen to good music together, receive Jesus’ body and blood together, and be sent on mission together. Whew! We pack a lot into worship. Most of all, God packs his grace into our hearts.
