Scripture

And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus. – Matthew 1 24 thru 25 NASB

Devotion

It still astounds me that nowhere in the Gospels that talk about birth of Jesus do we hear Joseph’s voice. In fact, as we search the Gospels, we discover that they do not contain a single word uttered from the mouth of Jesus’ earthly father. But, as some people say, actions often speak much louder than words! Through his silent actions, Joseph teaches us three valuable lessons:

First, we are introduced to Joseph in the middle of a personal crisis. He was engaged to a beautiful young girl and he had worked hard to establish an income to support his new bride and begin a family. He is committed to Mary. He believed she loved him, until he heard the news that his precious bride is pregnant. Before any divine explanation, Joseph chose mercy. Certainly he could have asked a lot of questions here, such as ‘How could you do this to me?’ or ‘Who’s the father?’ But no such words are recorded, only tenderness. He would not hurt Mary, no matter what he thought she had done. When he could have demanded a bitter sentence, he chose a righteous mercy. Joseph displayed righteousness and mercy. This righteous carpenter would help to raise God’s Son to be a merciful Savior.

Second, God gave Joseph a glimpse of His Divine plan in a dream. Because Joseph was a descendant of David and a righteous man, I believe God gave him the unique job of raising the Messiah. God told Joseph that Mary’s Son would, “save His people from their sins!” Jesus came to earth to redeem humankind, to save us from the penalty of our sins. God has done for us what we were unable to do for ourselves. He paid the price for our sins with the blood of His Son. He bought us back. He redeemed us. What an awesome gift! Can you imagine Joseph’s anticipation, knowing that he would be responsible for the upbringing of the most important child ever born? God is asking Joseph to raise the Savior as his own son. Most people would never accept that kind of challenge.

Third, there was no hesitation with Joseph. He understood clearly what God expected of him and was ready to obey! He would take Mary to be his wife and suffer the cutting remarks about a child conceived prior to their wedding. He would obey in spite of the fact that this child of divine promise would be born under a false cloud of adultery. He called his adopted son “Jesus,” just as he was told to do. Joseph believed God and obeyed Him.

Throughout this season, and throughout the rest of our lives, I hope that we will take with us the lessons we can learn from a simple carpenter who’d been given the greatest honor.

One Year Bible
King James Version

by Russell Sherrard

One Year Bible KJV

One Year Bible King James Version

This is a One Year Bible of the King James Version. The reason I call it a one year Bible is because it divides the Bible into 366 portions (leap years added) so a person can start reading this Bible from the beginning and spend just 15 minutes a day and can read the entire Bible in one year. This edition is optimized for Text-to-Speech which means I have taken out all of the chapter and verse references and also added at the beginning of each section “Daily Bible Reading for Month, day reference”. I had to do a lot of research to find out good divisions for how many chapters to include for each day. Most days have 3 chapters so the day can be read, or have the Kindle read in 15 minutes. If you want to resolve this year to read through the Bible in a year this is the perfect vehicle to accomplish this goal and to finally keep a New Years Resolution.

King James Version

Holy Bible King James Version

Holy Bible King James Version

The King James Version is an English translation of the Christian Bible began in 1604 and completed in 1611 by the Church of England. A primary concern of the translators was to produce a Bible that would be appropriate, dignified and resonant in public reading. Hence, in a period of rapid linguistic change, they avoided contemporary idioms; tending instead towards forms that were already slightly archaic, like “verily” and “it came to pass”.

The word of our lord is now just a click away, giving you the comfort in knowing that you are no alone!

Interactive Romans Road World English Version

Interactive Romans Road World English Version

Long Ago, when the Roman Empire was at the height of its glory, a common saying was “All Roads Lead to Rome.” I want to tell you about a very special road — a road that existed then and still exists now. This road, now almost 2,000 years old, has never led to Rome. Yet, strangely enough, it is called the Romans Road.

This takes the reader to selected passages in the Book of Romans in the Bible to explain the plan of Salvation. This is the ideal way to share the gospel using your Kindle. The reader can also read the entire book of Romans un-interrupted.
