“Surrogate Father” Matthew 1-2
Many men have been called upon to be an adoptive, foster or surrogate father. One day unparalleled in history, an ordinary man was called to raise a royal child as his own.
1.When he learned that his fiancé was pregnant Joseph wanted to do the right thing but not to embarrass her.
2.God’s angel spoke directly to him.
3.Joseph was told to keep Mary because she was
still a virgin…..
4….. to name the child Jesus (Jehovah Saves) because He would save His people from
5…..and how to protect him.
6.Joseph obeyed the instructions and maintained Mary’s virginity until after the birth. Matt 1:24-25
So then, the scriptures show us that God
uses ordinary men in His plan,
including the raising of His own Son.
