Romans 1:3,4 His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh, who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus, God in the flesh was born into a line of incest, prostitution, and adultery i. e. Tamar, Rahab, Ruth (a descendant of incest) and Bathsheba. Born to Mary, a virgin. Jesus is in the redemption business. He stopped at nothing for us. He died naked on a cross so that we could be naked and not ashamed. He entered into a family heritage of sexual sin to become the model of purity for us. He is the Spirit of holiness. He not only showed us sexual purity can be done, but He showed us how it’s done.
Likewise, just as He broke into the family line of David, He has broken into your family line as well. He is in you through the power of the Holy Spirit transforming you from the inside out. Have confidence in the hope of His purpose, what He started, He will finish. He is rewriting your future, and changing your family history.
Without the transforming power of Jesus Christ you would be just another addict at a meeting trying to control your demons rather than rid yourself of them. He didn’t say “it’s for sobriety that He set you free,” but freedom. Freedom means free. To get there you have to not be OK with OK. Say no to a good marriage and go after a great one. In the workplace, get off the manna, cross the river, kick some butt, and drink some wine. General Patton once remarked that “one thing separates the good generals from the great ones. Audacity.” Go after the great, it’s there for you to take.
