Just like Joseph, you can’t see the whole
picture. Just like Joseph, your task is to
see that Jesus is brought into your part of
your world. And just like Joseph, you have a
choice: to obey or disobey. Because Joseph
obeyed, God used him to change the
world. Can He do the same with you?
God still looks for Josephs today.
Men and women who believe that
God is not through with this world.
Common people who serve an
uncommon God. Will you be that
kind of person? Will you serve… even
when you don’t understand? No, the
Bethlehem sky is not the first to hear
the pleadings of an honest heart,
nor the last. And perhaps God didn’t
answer every question for Joseph.
But He answered the most important
one. “Are you still with me, God?” And
through the first cries of the Godchild
the answer came.
“Yes. Yes, Joseph. I’m with you.”
There are many questions about
the Bible that we won’t be able to
answer until we get home. Many
knotholes and snapshots. Many times
we will muse, “I wonder…”
But in our wonderings, there is one
question we never need to ask. Does
God care? Do we matter to God? Does
He still love His children?
Through the small face of the
stable-born baby, He says yes.
Yes, your sins are forgiven.
Yes, your name is written in heaven.
Yes, death has been defeated.
And yes, God has entered your world.
Immanuel. God is with us.
