Daily Devotional – What if you knew?

Matthew 1:18-25 An Unusual Birth - Faithlife Sermons

Matthew 1:18-25


CONTEXT/COMMENTS

In yesterday’s devotional,  we looked at the story of Jesus birth from the physician Luke’s perspective. We focused upon the blessing Mary had to be chosen as the mother of our Lord and Savior. 

In the Gospel of Matthew we find a completely different story one in which Mary is not the key figure but Joseph. It got me to thinking, what if we only had this version, would we speculate on if Mary understood the significance of the Child she was carrying. 

It is obvious that being a virgin v.23 she would have know that a miracle of God had taken place, that something very special had happened, but could she have even imagined she was carrying the Great I AM. 

I often wonder if God decided to show every mother considering an abortion,  who there child could be, would they still make that dreadful decision or seek alternatives. 

This Christmas season and throughout the coming year let us all pray for every expectant mother.
