Jospeh: a Sermon on Matthew 1:18-25

Jospeh: a Sermon on Matthew 1:18-25

December 23, 2019

This message is on the text from Matthew 1:18-25 (below) which gives Joseph's perspective on the birth of Jesus. It looks at Joseph's predicament, his task and his response. He's a wonderful figure for us to mediate on and imitate in our lives. 

Matthew 1:18-25, "Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. 20But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’ 22All this took place to fulfil what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet:
23 ‘Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel’, which means, ‘God is with us.’ 24When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, 25but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son; and he named him Jesus."

True Blessedness: a Sermon on Matthew 5:1-12

True Blessedness: a Sermon on Matthew 5:1-12

November 20, 2019

This message is based on Matthew 5:1-12 and looks at what Jesus teaches it means to be truly blessed, in contrast to the messages from our wider culture. We're blessed in our helplessness as well as our helpfulness, and most of all we're blessed in Christ.

Here's the text:

Matthew 5:1-12, "When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying: ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. ‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. ‘Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
