Kitchen Table Devotions

Christmas 2022

Day 2

Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly                  Matthew 1:18-19

Christmas comes from a wanting heart.  The Holy Spirit works with the wanting heart.  Joseph didn’t want to put Mary to shame even though he must have been devastated.  Women dream of being married; men dream of who they’ll marry.  But a heart that wants God, wants more for everyone involved.  The Holy Spirit decorates for the season with the wanting heart.  Joseph didn’t want shame but rather smiles for Mary.  The heart that wants God is a heart that God wants to use and will.  Wanting something more, something better than this world has to offer, is what Christmas is all about.  God wants this for us, do we want that for Him?
