140 Words (More or Less) About Your Christmas Past
It’s Twitterific Thursday, where I write a post in 140 words, more or less. Today, I write about your Christmas past.
Perhaps you have something in your past that holds you back. Something that you haven’t overcome. Something that handicaps you. I want to challenge you during this Christmas season to push through and beat it. Why? Because of the genealogy of Jesus.
Jacob was a cheat.
Judah slept with his daughter-in-law.
Rahab was prostitute.
Ruth was a Moabite.
David was an adulterer and murderer.
Solomon let his wives turn his heart from God.
Most of the kings that followed Solomon did evil in God’s sight.
That is Jesus’ past. Those are his ancestors. That is the line that he came through.
Oh yeah. His mother, Mary, became pregnant while betrothed to Joseph. That wasn’t as accepted as it is today.
If you didn’t notice, this did not hold Christ back. It didn’t keep him from achieving His mission.
Are you letting anything from your past hold you back? Why don’t you evaluate that this Christmas and find a way to overcome it?
