That being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the Law; for they are unprofitable and vain. Titus, Chapter 3, verses 7-9.
I remember hearing that some people seem to feel that they deserve a certain amount of prestige because they have followed their family roots all the way back to those who landed on Plymouth Rock. I understand that following your family tree can be interesting, but I think God is telling Genealogy Christians, that even if we checked our family tree and found we were related to the Apostle Paul himself, we would be wasting our time. It’s not who you know that gets you into heaven, it’s our love for Jesus and trying to lead the life He wants for us. That’s what makes the difference!
Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my walk with Christ, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verses.
