Waiting for God's Promises

So Pastor's talking this morning about how long Sarah and Abraham waited for that baby.  Twenty-five years.  Along the way, they had options for God.  But those weren't what God had promised.  They had to wait.

Then Rebekah, their daughter-in-law, had to wait.  So Abraham didn't see his grandson until 85 years after God told him he would be the father of a great nation. 

And then Rachel didn't conceive very quickly either.

What I'd never noticed before was Leah's side of the family.  In the line of promise, Judah's daughter-in-law Tamar was waiting around for a good long time before she conceived too. 

The angel told Joseph to name the baby JESUS "for He shall save His people from their sins."
