Matthew 2
Walking Through Matthew Part 2


Joseph’s Obedience

2 Samuel 7:16, “Your house and your kingdom will continue before me for all time, and your throne will be secure forever.”

Matthew 1:18a, “This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph…”
Matthew 1:18b, “…but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.”
Matthew 1:19, “Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.”
“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”
Conceived by the Holy Spirit = His Divinity
Birthed by Mary = His Humanity
Matthew 1:20, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife.”
Matthew1:21, “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
Luke 19:10, “The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Matthew 1:23, “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel.”

Lessons on Obedience from Joseph:

  • Obedience Can Be Embarrassing
  • Obedience Is Often Inconvenient
  • Obedience Doesn’t Always Make Sense
  • Obedience Usually comes with a Price
Matthew 16:24 “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 

Philippians 2:5-8, "In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!" 

Obedience Will Always Be Rewarded
1 John 2:3 “We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands.” 

Hebrews 11:6 "Without faith it is impossible to please God…

Luke 11:28 “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” 

John 13:17 “Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.” 

Matthew 1:24 “When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded.”
