Word Of the Day.... December 25, 2012

Christ Born of Mary

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus.  Matthew 1:18-25

Joseph was told “you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”  The name “Jesus” is a Greek version of “Joshua” which is a contraction of Yahweh, the name for God, and Shewa, which means “salvation.”  It is shortened to “Joshua” and describes His mission.  Jesus was God, and He came to save.  His name describes His nature and His reason for coming.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!  I hope that the Lord blesses each one of you on this wonderful Christmas day.  Keep Jesus as the center of your thoughts as you go through out your day.  God bless you and your families!!!!
