The Unexpected Gift
Can you imagine what it must have been like to care for Jesus as a child? Joseph didn’t need to imagine it, because he experienced it. He played a vital part in God’s story of Redemption, yet he almost walked away from it all. Like Joseph, many people “accept Jesus” without really knowing what to expect. They end up rejecting Him for reasons that are emotional, intellectual, or moral. Perhaps their reasons are volitional - they simply don’t want to give up control of their own life. Ultimately, Joseph believed God’s Word and his entire life changed. The same can happen for you, but only if you choose to receive the Gift of Christmas: Jesus Christ!
