Advent: Week Four

In the fourth week of the “Advent” series, Pastor Andrew Zemianek speaks from Matthew chapter one, in which Joseph struggles with his place in God’s plan regarding Jesus’ birth. Joseph could have responded very differently to the circumstances he found himself in & our entire history would have been changed forever. Instead, Joseph chose to be obedient to God & to choose joy in the difficulties; because of his response, he got to be a part of the biggest miracle in human history. Deciding to follow Jesus doesn’t necessarily make life easier, it can actually be more difficult when you have to walk opposite to culture as Joseph did, however, if you all your pursuit of the joy that God’s salvation brings to overshadow the difficulties, you’ll find they often bring your greatest blessings in disguise.
