“This is how Jesus came to be born.”

Matthew 1:18-24

Joseph is often overlooked in the season of Advent, but his role in the birth of Jesus and in fathering him is an example for each one of us to follow. Joseph was faithful and faith filled. He was a man placed in an unbelievably difficult situation, and yet he accepted it with love. The direction of his life changed radically and he would never have believed that God’s plan would send him in the direction that it did.

Today on this Sunday, let us ask Joseph for his intercession in our lives. Make us faithful like you to the end.
