The more we see the God-man Messiah as He is, the more we will follow Him into the life only He could give to us.


18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:

23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
    and they shall call his name Immanuel”

(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.

 Matthew 1:18-25


  • Do you tend to see Jesus as He is or less than He is?
  • Meditate on the majesty of the God-man Messiah who alone saves you from sin and makes you new.
  • As you do, consider how you might trust Him with more of your life the more you see Him as He is; and how seeing Him as He is might compel you to partner with Him and His people in making all things new.
