Christ as King: A Study in Matthew

DAY 1 OF 28

What does it say?

The angel’s message to Joseph confirmed that Mary was the virgin through whom the Holy Spirit would send the long-awaited Messiah.

What does it mean?

Matthew’s Gospel was written to first-century Jews who were waiting for the promised Messiah. Jesus’ ancestry fulfilled the requirement that the Messiah would come from the line of Abraham through King David. Mary’s pregnancy through the Holy Spirit and Jesus’ virgin birth into the household of Joseph proved His Messianic credentials. Matthew presented Jesus as the Christ promised in the covenant God made with Abraham and David. Immanuel, God with us, would be born in human flesh for the purpose of saving mankind from their sins.

How should I respond?

Who is Jesus? As Christians, we believe Jesus is the Savior who forgives and delivers us from sin, allowing us companionship with Him each moment of every day. Do you claim Jesus as your Savior? If so, your life should demonstrate your love for and faith in Christ. How does His constant presence make a difference in your thoughts, attitudes, and actions? God gives opportunities for you to identify with Christ at school and work. Will you choose to live openly as a follower of Christ today? Who will you tell that Jesus is the Savior?
