A Christmas Delivery Week 2

A Christmas Delivery Week 2

18  Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been
betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy
Spirit. 19  And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved
to divorce her quietly. 20  But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared
to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that
which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21  She will bear a son, and you shall call his
name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22  All this took place to fulfill what the
Lord had spoken by the prophet:
23  “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name Immanuel”
(which means, God with us). 24  When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord
commanded him: he took his wife, 25  but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he
called his name Jesus. Matthew 1:18-25 (ESV)
Questions to Ponder
 What are your thoughts on Joseph?
 For you men, how would you feel to be chosen by God to be the earthly father of
the Messiah?
 How can the life of Joseph encourage you in your walk with Christ this
Christmas?
