Matthew 1:18-25

The Christmas story is far more than just a story about the birth of Jesus.  It is an invitation to wholeheartedly trust God.  Inevitably in this life we will face difficulties and threats but through faith in the one whose birth we celebrate, we can face whatever lies ahead with confidence because God is with us.  As we reflect on the Christmas story again this year, let’s recognize God’s invitation to each one of us to place our trust wholly in him.
