Joseph: The Skeptic.

Joseph: The Skeptic.

Speaker: Dion Garrett

Series: Scandal of Grace

Category: 2016 Worship Series

Summary:

Hearing Mary’s story and assuming she was lying, Joseph gave into to cynicism, a judgmental spirit, and had in mind to cast her off, gently, but definitively. Yet, God in his mercy appears to Joseph and gives him another chance to do the RIGHT thing and play the truly honorable role as earthly father to the king of kings. God has grace for skeptics. He doesn’t write them off, but pursues them in a way they can understand until they surrender to his truth

Detail:

Matthew 1:18-25

Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son

18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about[a]: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet[b] did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[c] because he will save his people from their sins.”

22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”[d] (which means “God with us”).

24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
