What was it like to be Joseph?

You’re 16 or 17 years old, you’re getting ready to marry the woman of your dreams, you’ve got a nice house picked out for the two of you to start a family, and then you find out: she’s pregnant! And you know that you’re not the father because you’ve never done that together. So you decide to divorce your sweetheart quietly. You don’t want to hurt the girl, or stop her from marrying the real father or another guy.

But then an angel appears to you and tells you that that child isn’t just human, he’s from God. And he’s come to save people from their sins.

Joseph is an amazing example of faith for us.
Read about his story in Matthew 1:18-25 (http://bit.ly/2QtvjFX).

Ask God to give you faith like Joseph.
Ask Him to help you to believe that Jesus is able to save you from your sins.

I love the Christmas song, “Christ the Saviour is born, Christ the Saviour is born
(http://bit.ly/2DL25LO)

Read 1 Timothy 1:15 (http://bit.ly/2Qpydv2) – it says that “Jesus came into the world to save sinners”. The word Christ means ‘Messiah’, Messiah means ‘the promised deliverer’ – Jesus is the Messiah. Jesus was chosen to save the world.

How did Jesus save the world?
He came to earth, died the death we were supposed to, and rose from death to life – because of this we are saved from sin. Only Jesus, the Messiah, can save us from sin.

Have you been saved from your sins?

What was it like to be Mary?

You’re 12 or 13 years old, you’re getting ready to be married, you’re excited and nervous at the same time. But then an angel appears to you; he tells you that you’re going to get pregnant by the power of the Holy Spirit, and have a son who will become the King of the world.

How would you feel?
Freaked out?

But look at how Mary receives this news in Luke 1:26-38 (http://bit.ly/2Qoj1P0).
She is an amazing example of faith. She knows she’s going to have to explain how a virgin can have a baby and that everyone’s going to gossip about her behind her back. She trusts God anyway.

How I wish I had faith even a little bit like Mary.
Ask God to help you believe in Him like Mary did, even if people laugh at you and hate you for it.

I love the Christmas song “Joy to the world, the Lord is come.
(http://bit.ly/2QoJE6e)

These words make me think of 1 Timothy 1:15 (http://bit.ly/2Qpydv2) which says, “Jesus came into the world.”

From these words we know that the Lord our Creator came to us and because of this we can be very happy. Before the Lord came to us, we did not know Him – that was a sad time. I know God because He came to and for me.

In this song we sing, “let earth receive her king

Have you accepted the Lord?
Welcome Jesus into your life today!
