Stepping Up

December 17, 2023

In today’s most familiar passage of the Christmas story, we are going learn some unbelievably valuable life lessons that I pray we will never forget. If we can remember these truths when we face the difficulties of life, we will step up and be what God wants us to be and do what God wants us to do. Here is the principle to remember: No matter what is in front of you, God is always ahead of you. Let’s look at how this truth plays out in the life of Joseph.

Unsung Hero

Through this Christmas series entitled Unsung Hero, we are going to be spending some time with a man in the Bible who has very little said about him. In fact, he is not even recorded as saying anything in the Bible. But without question, we hear his name every Christmas. And as we spend time studying him in this series, you will see he is a man who certainly deserves to be recognized. We are talking about Joseph the father of Jesus.

Bible Reference

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.
This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria.
And all went to be registered, each to his own town.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David,
to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.
