Jesus had to wait

Luke 3:23-38…

This is Jesus’ genealogy through the line of Mary.

Jesus is a real man, an eternal being who was also an historical person. Jesus is the promised “seed of the woman” (Genesis 3:15). Jesus is in the line of David, and will sit on “the throne of David” (Isaiah 9:7). He is called by those who know this and believe the “son of David” (Matthew 9:27, 12:23, 15:22 / Luke 18:38-39). Jesus is the rightful heir, in both the divine and human senses.

The Jews, and the world, had to wait thousands of years before the Savior appeared, but God sent His Son when the time was right (Galatians 4:4-5), as He had promised (Romans 1:2-3). Through Jesus we become rightful heirs in the kingdom of God (Romans 8:17 / Galatians 3:29, 4:6-7 / Ephesians 3:6 / Titus 3:4-7).

The Savior will return again, and we are supposed to be watching, waiting, and working until that time comes (Luke 19:13 / 1 Peter 4:7). It can be a hard wait at times, but it will happen (Romans 8:23, 13:11 / 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). The Bible is full of people who have a promise but they have to wait on it. Even Jesus had to wait till His time was right.

If we believe in Him, then we can wait, too (Isaiah 40:31 / 2 Timothy 4:8 / Titus 2:11-14). We can live for today by having an eye for tomorrow.

but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Is 40:31

Glory to His name!
