1.1 Fill My Cup, Lord

01_7Read Matthew chapter 1. The Genealogy of Jesus found in this chapter
shows how God can use brokenness for holy purposes. Take a few moments to think of Rahab the
prostitute, Judah visiting prostitutes, Ruth risking being a stranger and rejection
to and David doing great things for Israel and producing an heir to the thrown
(Solomon) with “Uriah’s wife” (Bathsheba). Take a few moments to think about your spiritual ancestors (Sunday
school teachers, bible study leaders, parents, preachers, etc.). Then offer God all of who you can become
through God’s grace.
