Joseph’s Adopted Son

Passage: Matthew 1:18-25

Joseph may be the one person in the story of Jesus’ birth that folks are most likely to forget about or ignore. He isn’t even mentioned in the carol we have been using as our devotional piece for Advent, “What Child is This?”. But like each of the other people mentioned in this song, there is much we can learn about the true identity of the child born that night from his adopted father. In fact, Joseph reminds us of the incredible gift it is to be able to call God our Father.
