Dec 9: Jesus is Redeemer



Matthew 2: 18-24


Joseph has a very important role in the story of Christmas. Joseph had to believe, he had to trust, he had to be strong. He was chosen to be Jesus’ earthly father. He was chosen to believe the promise given to Mary, trust in the word of God, believe the angel’s declaration, look after Mary and Jesus, and to follow God’s commands leading Mary and Jesus to safety. Joseph was chosen to help Mary raise Jesus., to provide for him whilst he was a child, to teach him the ways of his heavenly Father. Joseph also taught Jesus how to be a carpenter.   

What toys do you love to play with? Imagine Jesus as a child, imagine growing up and playing with wood and nails.
