The Christmas Tree: Ornaments of Faith
Southeast Christian Church
Published on 12/18/2011
As we look at the genealogy of Jesus, we have seen ornaments of hope and grace hanging on the branches. But we also see signs of another ornament: the ornament of faith. This family tree shows us faith on almost every branch. You may not even recognize all the names, yet those names are ornaments of faith on the tree (Matt. 1:7,10,11,13). But if you follow the branches on this tree, there are two names you'll recognize for sure, two names that have stories of faith that many of us have heard many times before. And even though the Christmas tree is full of faith, I just can't imagine talking about ornaments of faith without placing the main focus on this couple: Mary and Joseph.
