Jesus Understands What It Means To Be Human, By Karen Rowe

Note: Today, Many quotes from Related Bible Studies on the Bible App (with emphasis mine).  I pray this inspires you to go see those!  To God be the Glory.  No credit to me; This is the way the Holy Spirit lead me to share this with you too.

Study the stories of those in the Genealogy of Jesus:
The dreaded genealogies, with hard-to-pronounce names and no storyline (or so it seems).  Yet behind the sometimes unfamiliar names, this text is jam-packed full of stories of how God worked through the messy lives of men and women.
* whose mother was Rahab.
* whose mother was Bathsheba, the widow of Uriah
***The point is, …
This is the family Jesus entered, the world Jesus entered,
and when we’re honest, -it’s the world in which we all live –***embarrassingly glorious in the way God worked in and through these lives.
The message is:
Heb 7:25 – He is able to save ANYONE who comes to Him!

This Christmas, the Lord brought me to explore the world in which we all live & with a few points this season tends to overlook.

Whatever God allows in your life; He doesn’t want you to be right. He wants to make you right.

Friends, let it begin with me! Anyone feel a dire need to join? The family Jesus entered into was far from perfect. If we are honest the world Jesus entered is the world we all live – embarrassingly glorious in the way God worked in and through these lives in the Genealogy of Jesus, which proves God’s Grace!

This Christmas, I am encouraged to take time to notice God’s work within Matthew, so that we will also be more humbled / able to recognize God’s work within our own situations in our life. How about you?

I truly believe when we receive this we will never be the same! Invite the Holy Spirit to re-frame your past to see your future and to be full of Grace, truth and peace in each today! Only God can transform your soul from ashes to glory!

Friends, do you feel misunderstood? Do you just want to feel the warmth of being at one with your own soul? Then Friends, Jesus is the One who can help you rise up to receive all HE offers.

Here’s the deal. This is for all of us.

Someone is depressed. Feeling like an outcast. Perhaps even unforgivingly guilty from past sins or mistakes? Jesus is how both respond to Grace.

To love someone enough to help them see Grace is for the ungrateful and evil as well. See? Look at the Genealogy of Jesus! God hand picked people to show His love and mercy and grace and hope and divine divinity … people who were like the thorns pressed into the head of Jesus.

Twisted trees; broken people in the Genealogy of Jesus, the symmetry … and the asymmetry that God chose a people such as He did! JESUS was born into a genealogy of people to identify with sin in the very way He took on our sin & the sins of the world, in like manner as when the Soldier twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head (Jn 19:2)

The point is Hebrews 7:25, Jesus is able to save ANYONE who comes to Him!

Christmas is not about what is under the tree, but the people around the tree!

God is near.

Christmas is not about what’s under the tree, but what’s around the tree…people.


  1. God is near, not far.
  2. If God can save your soul, then surely, He can save you within whatever situation you are in today.

Jesus also knows what was needed…a savior…Jesus means Jehovah saves.

Immanuel is the method to bringing us Jesus … the savior.

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14 KJV).

“Not so bright or moral people in the genealogy of Jesus.  Notable sinners, Cowards, power seekers, murders, prostitutes, pleasure seekers …like us.”


Jesus gets it.  He is God with us … Immanuel … and He understands what it means to be human.  A refugee, a political prisoner, a homeless man, an outcast, called names, despised, ridiculed, targeted, tempted, misunderstood.

Whatever God allows in your life,

He doesn’t want you to be right.

He wants to make you right.

Whatever God allows in your life, He doesn’t want you to be right.  He wants to make you right.

When something comes, how do I respond?  What does it reveal in my life?

Am I willing to receive it and let it be a catalyst to receiving the grace and love that God intends for me to receive?

Rather than being bitter over _____, code to faithfully serve.  Waiting for the savior of your soul.  When the savior comes, we rejoice!


This is how God put my study together today.  I hope this is a blessing to you.  Others are gifted to help us grow in our understanding, so that we can be more like Jesus and to God be the glory.  We need each other and always remember, it takes a negative and a positive to see the evidence of the source (God) work the power (Light / Life / electricity) from the site of the switch (Jesus) to the display of the light (God with us).  And to God be the glory – God is our Source and Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  Jesus come for …

God for us.

God with us.

God in us.

Merry Christmas!  I pray you know the love God has for you.  I pray you believe the love God has for you.  When you receive this, you will never be the same.

What does John 3:16 and John 3:17 say to you?

Love in Christ,




Holy Spirit encourage the readers today.  Lift our minds higher to God’s Thoughts.  Bless those who will receive.  And, keep molding our hearts to be always ready to bloom for the glory of God to be a blessing to us all.

and pray …in the Spirit of the Most Holy God.  God knows what He is doing.

Love in Christ,

Next articleChristmas Letter From Dewey and Sharon of FGGAM, Who Are We? Let Others Tell Your Story
Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
