Last week's truth: Your greatest interruption may be your greatest opportunity.
This series addresses the fact that God intervened in the world through the coming of Christ the Messiah. God didn't just interrupt history, he interrupted people.
In marrying a woman who is already pregnant, Joseph is being asked to do something that would have been socially unacceptable. This interruption was not just surprising or confusing, it was shameful.
The bottom line:
Sometimes what you have planned isn't what God has purposed.
Here's what we know about Joseph:
•He was a righteous man
•His capacity to love overwhelmed his temptation to be bitter
•He was open to hearing from God
•Ultimately...he obeyed
-He allowed his plans to be interrupted
-He trusted God enough to obey

Perhaps the Christmas story asks whether this is true of us today.
The question today is not...
-will it be easy?
-will it be convenient?
-will it make sense?

The question today is...
-will I obey?
