Redeeming the Disobedient and the Deceptive

June 3, 2018

Matthew 1:1-6, Genesis 38:27-30 | | Series:

“Is every person redeemable?” A friend and colleague in ministry asked me this question recently. My first thought was, “Yes, if they want to be redeemed.” When we read Jesus’ genealogy in Matthew, for example, we find some notorious branches in the family tree. God doesn’t make our choices for us or predestine our behavior, but he does redeem our decisions for his greater purpose and glory. Today we look at the strange saga of Judah and Tamar. God redeemed their brokenness to bring his own Son into the world. He can redeem us as well!
