Last week we looked at the life of Zachariah and Elizabeth who walked the road of righteousness and God blessed them with a son named John.
This week we look at the lives of Joseph and Mary. When Mary became pregnant while engaged to Joseph, he planned to send her away secretly because he loved her and did not want to disgrace her, yet he knew the child was not his.
An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. Matthew 1: 20-21
So Joseph rejected any fear and obeyed the message from the Lord. He became the husband of Mary and the father of Jesus, the Savior.
No one has ever faced the exact circumstances of Joseph but all of us have had to decide to be obedient to God. There are times when we know exactly what we must do.
Joseph knew he must marry Mary and raise their son Jesus. Their obedience changed the world and your obedience will make a difference, too.
