Preacher : Pastor John Lukyamuzi


Matthew chapter 1 shows Joseph, a humble man, with much faith in God and married Mary, the mother of Jesus.  Luke 1:56; "And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house."

Mary, pregnant with Jesus, was with her cousin Elizabeth, who was pregnant with John The Baptist, for three months. Joseph found Mary, his fiance, with child while making preparations for their wedding ceremony, he found out she was pregnant as foretold by the angel Gabriel. As she was a virgin who found favor with God. Joseph being upset and afraid to take Mary as his wife, was told by the angel Gabriel not to be afraid to take Mary as his wife. (Matthew 1:18-24). God has told us to walk by faith. Mary trusted God on her own, there was no one to exhort her in her walk with God. As here on Earth, there is a democracy, there is no democracy in heaven. Heaven is a Kingdom. You must do everything God's way.

The other Joseph, the son of Jacob found in Genesis 39,  had a dream. He was another man of great faith in God, whose father loved him very much. He was sold into slavery in Egypt by his brothers because of their jealousy. What they meant for evil, God meant for good. While there, the Pharoah's wife tried to cause Joseph to commit intimate sin with her. But Joseph ran because he had faith in God and knew that was wrong. She had Joseph thrown into prison. He later became Prime Minister of Egypt.Galatians 2:20; "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."Jesus is within you and His power is working within you. Ephesians 3:20; "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us," It is not by you, what you do. It is God's power working within you.
