He Shall Reign- week 1
Passage: Matthew 1:18–1:25
This week is the first week of Advent, and Dan Clancy teaches the Christmas story from the perspective of Joseph, Mary's husband-to-be. In Matthew Chapter 1 we get a glimpse into the incredible statement from the angel that Mary is pregnant yet is still a virgin - and Joseph chose to believe the angel who spoke to him in a dream that the baby conceived in Mary was from the Holy Spirit. Are we willing to believe as Joseph did - to recognize the importance, the doctrine and the authority of Jesus? The story of Christmas isn't just a legend and Jesus isn't just a nice guy. Jesus tells us we can be saved by sheer grace and we can know the joy of being accepted as a child of God. Will this Christmas be different for you this year?
