DECEMBER 11 – DIFFERENT

12/11 Luke 2:4-5
And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. 5 He took with him Mary, his fiancé, who was obviously pregnant by this time.
DIFFERENT
This is different than what we are used to or what we think. People didn’t count in this day. Leaders were often evil oppressive men and sometimes women. What to Joseph was a difficult trip translates across the centuries to us as the activity of God in His world. Jesus was the creator. Jesus was fully God and fully man and this was how He arranged His visit to our world. Where are you hurting? What oppressive thing has the world done to you or maybe there is someone you have mistreated. Jesus loves you. Go to Him. A simple Lord help me will receive immediate attention. No busy signals with Jesus. He will help you.
