Devotional - The Promised Son

Devotional - The Promised Son

“Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.” – Matthew 1:17

 

Fernando Hermansson Carabali, 37, began his life in Colombia, where he was left at a monastery as an infant. The nuns took him in and cared for him for a little while, and then they placed him for adoption with a family in Sweden. He grew up there and had a happy childhood with his adoptive family.

As an adult, he began to wonder about his biological family. Then, in the summer of 2021, Fernando received a MyHeritage DNA kit as a gift from a good friend. Four weeks after he sent in the sample, he received the results, and right there at the top of his DNA Match list was a man called Ivan. The estimated relationship was listed as “half-brother.”

Ivan, 35, had grown up in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. He was also born in Colombia and placed for adoption at age 3.

“It came as a bit of a shock,” said Fernando. “I contacted Ivan and I got a quick response. It was fantastic. Ivan is 35, so I have a little brother. It feels unbelievable.”

The two also found two half-sisters Sandra and Angela. Sandra said she can’t live without her siblings now, and advises anyone looking for biological family members: “Don’t give up, search for your family. Anything is possible!”

 

Though some people have an interesting family tree, only Jesus is the son of Abraham and the son of David. Jesus Christ is the Promised Son. Today in prayer, praise the Lord that He became a man, just as our Heavenly Father promised.

 

“The Son of God became a man to enable men to become the sons of God.” – C.S. Lewis

 

God’s Word: “Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry. He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli … the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.” – Luke 3:23, 38
