She took Judah’s ring, bracelet and the staff and bore twins from Judah’s seed.),
Rahab (She was a prostitute and she has faith and believed that the God of Israel would win. She helped the spies from amongst the children of Israel to escape safely from Jericho),
Ruth (She was a virtuous woman [the only woman who was called virtuous in the Bible], but she was under the curse. She was a Gentile – a Moabite),
Bathsheba (She was publicly bathing under the house of David, and then committed adultery with David.
Of all the 18 sons of David born by his many wives, Bathsheba’s son, Solomon was chosen by God to carry on the Messianic Genealogy),
and Mary (the virgin woman who gave birth to Jesus) –
these five women are included in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. This is God magnifying His grace!
Five is the number of grace! It doesn’t matter how dark your background – God can turn it around when you turn to Him.
Your sin will not mark or define your life. Superabounding grace is what will mark and define you.
