Advent 2016 - Christ is Coming!: Joseph's Dreams (Matthew 1:18-25)

Rev. Dr. Ramon E. McDonald II, December 18, 2016
Part of the Advent 2016 - Christ is Coming! series, preached at a Sunday Morning Contemporary service

I imagine Joseph’s dreams didn’t include the Christmas story. Although a godly man, he probably had other dreams. What are our dreams and are we willing to give up our dreams to follow God’s plan for our lives?

Matthew 1:18-25

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:

23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name Immanuel”

(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. (ESV)
