Scriptures: Matthew 1:18-25, 2:13-23, John 1:46

Every year, during the Christmas season, we hear a lot about many characters in the Christmas story, but Joseph is almost like a fifth-wheel. He shows up in the nativity scene, but he doesn't bring any gifts. He doesn't sing any songs. He doesn't make any speeches. He just stands there in his sandals and his robe. But one day, God told Joseph he was going to be a part of seeing His promise come true. In Jesus, God will bring to pass all the prophecies concerning the Messiah, and He is going to use Joseph to be a part of it. In this message, Dr. Merritt explores the character of Joseph, Jesus' earthly father, who trusted God in the midst of great doubt, and then became a part of the greatest story in all of history.

"If you are in the middle of a situation where you are doubting whether or not you can make it, or you are doubting whether or not you can see it through, or you are doubting whether or not you can survive it, I want you to learn this lesson from Joseph. We are going to repeat it several times: For every problem there is a provision." --Dr. Merritt
