Proclaim Peace - December 17th

Matthew 1:18-25

Joseph's peace is the kind you have to work for. You have to cling to it, strive for it, hold onto it, sometimes even fight for it. That doesn't sound much like peace at all....it sounds like a battle zone and we hardly associate that with peace. But that's kind of the point. We have to fight for peace because fear is always there ready to take control ready to take over, and if we want peace instead, we have to force fear out of the way.

Think about Joseph. He was married to Mary...legally bound, but not yet living together or

Luke 1:5-25

Both Zechariah and Elizabeth were from the priestly line of ancestors.

Genesis 37 - Joseph's Story

When I was little, we used to get together with my extended family for the big holidays. And when we did, it was always a lesson in genealogy and family history.

And we only saw each other once or twice a year, so we were regularly asking "who is that?" "Who is he related to?" We became well versed in who was first cousins, second cousins, first cousins once removed and second

Hebrews 12:1-2

(holding flower bulbs)
Do you know what these are? These are flower bulbs. Does anyone know what a bulb is? Yes, it's like a seed...we plant it in the ground and then something grows from it. These are to grow flowers. But they're a little different from a seed. Most of the time, when we plant a seed, we need warm weather, or a warm room, and sunlight, and water for it to grow. And normally it starts to grow pretty quickly.
But a bulb is a little different. Who knows when we might plant a bulb? We plant them in the fall and then they stay dormant...they take a long nap....through the cold weather in winter and then

Hebrews 11

What is faith?

It's the assurance of things hoped for and conviction of things not yet seen. Well, what does that mean? The author of Hebrews decided it was easier to show us than to tell us. Hebrews highlights people who had faith and the chasm of unknown that lay between them and God's calling or promise, which was only overcome by faith.

For them, faith was hoping, trusting and believing that God would come through--that God would make good on God's promises, that God would provide and protect, all because of who God is and how much
