First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Matthew 1.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — Matthew introduces us to the genealogy of Christ (from Abraham to Jesus) and the birth of Christ (from a virgin who was engaged to be married).
- Doctrinal — Jesus was conceived inside Mary’s womb directly by the Holy Spirit, without having a human father or sperm (see verse 20).
- Inspirational — May I have the compassion of Joseph who, though he thought Mary had cheated on him, decided to divorce her the more private, discreet way (see verse 19).
