Commentary from Pastor Mike White:
…the son of Adam, the son of God. – Lk 3:38
The genealogy of Jesus Christ is perfect. His bloodline is as perfect as His blood! His lineage traces through David, since God promised Jesus would occupy the throne of His father David (Lk 1:32). Then it stretches back to Abraham, so that it would be made abundantly clear that we are heirs to the promises God made to Abraham (Gal 3:29). Finally, Jesus is a descendant of Adam, because He is the Second Adam. By one man, sin entered the world; by another Man, it was defeated (Rom 5:15).
The genealogy of Jesus shows that we are meant to live free from sin, in full receipt of the blessings of Abraham, while worshipping from a place of abounding joy, just as David did. We enjoy all these privileges because of the finished work of the Cross!
Father, thank You for the perfect blood of Your Son Jesus Christ. By His blood, I am washed clean! His blood blots out all my sin and covers all my iniquity. Thank You for His blood!
