Matthew Chapter 1

Mary was engaged to Joseph and she found out she was with child of the Holy Spirit.

If you look at Luke 1:25-26 it tells us a angel was sent to Mary and told her the Lord was with her and she had found favor with God. The angel went on the tell her that she would give birth to a son and he will be the Son of God.

Joseph did not know what to think once he found out Mary was with child. He did not want to make people think bad of her but had plans to secretly divorce her once they got married. Then one night as he was asleep the angel of the Lord appeared in his dream and told him not to be afraid because the child in Mary was of the Holy Spirit. The angel said she will have a son and you are to name him Jesus because He will save people from their sins.

“Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel”

Emmanuel means God with us

Its crazy to think of how if we only believe and listen to God there are so many things possible. But the world tells us thats not possible.. That its not real.. and it cannot be done. Y’all we have got to start listen to Him! It may not be as clear as the angel coming to Mary and Joseph but He really does talk to us and shows us the way.

“Be still, and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10
