“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.”Matthew 1:20
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, you too are identified with Him. It’s why you are called a Christian. You are a son or daughter of the living God. You bear the stamp and the identity of the One who came to earth to live and die for you. You ought to both tremble and take heart at the wonder of it all.
The march of salvation history, the fulfillment of prophecy, the long-awaited promise was on Joseph’s doorstep and in his life. What a holy moment this must have been for him. What a time to celebrate with holy awe and kneel in humble adoration! It should cause us to stop and worship as well.
Know who you are as a Christian. “You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God” (1 Peter 2:9).
