Joseph’s Faith Journey and Ours

Passage: Isaiah 7:10-16, Romans 1:1-7, Matthew 1:18-25

[No Audio]
Christmas is the celebration of the incarnation, the mystery that God is with us, in the flesh, in Jesus, both baby and Lord. Out God did not hide from us, but revealed himself to us, speaking to us, reaching out to us in Jesus. It’s what Isaiah promises, Joseph dreams of, and Paul feels blessed by. On this Sunday before Christmas, we speak of the same powerful God present in the form of a child bringing light to our darkness, restoration to our ruin, and salvation to our lives.
