Pastor Travis Norton

“Do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife,” Matthew 1:20 

I understand completely why Joseph would have been afraid to take Mary as his wife. He is a righteous man, meaning he wants to do what God wants him to do. How do you know what God wants you to do? You read the Bible, you listen to your leaders, you uphold the standards set by your community. But now Joseph is in this quandary. It seems whatever action he takes will be wrong. Sometimes, doing the right thing isn’t obvious. Sometimes, doing the right thing is considered wrong by others. God intervenes for Joseph and gives him guidance and permission and he obeyed. What can we learn from Joseph’s brave obedience?
