We are who we are now, because of the generations that have gone before us. Our current lifestyle, practice and choices have been made possible by the sacrifice, dedication and commitment of those who experienced an evolution of thought to push the boundaries for an improved way of life for themselves and those who would come after them.
Jesus was fully human. He was born of Mary and had ancestors before Him. Although His lineage is traced through His foster-father Joseph (Mt. 1:1-17), the reality of His being the Saviour of the world purified all who came before Him, and all who would come after. Our cleansing has a long history by His blood. Today, give Him thanks and praise.
Lord Jesus, You are the Alpha and the Omega, and the Saviour of our ancestors and descendants. May all generations call You our Blessed Lord. Amen.
