|Summary of Today’s Sermon by Pastor Bill Rabey:
This week’s theme is the intervention of God. As God’s people, we believe
that he not only makes sense of history, he also intervened in it. Isaiah 7:10-16
discusses the intervention of God in the strange, multi-meaning words about a
virgin that will one day bear a child. Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19 is a lament asking for
God’s intervention on Israel’s behalf. In Romans 1:1-7, Paul introduces the gos-
pel as God’s great narrative history throughout history that culminated in God
Himself entering history. Matthew 1:18-25 tells the story of God’s intervention
in the lives of two young people to change history forever. The sermon is bas-
ed on this Matthew passage and tells how God used an uneducated tradesman
to be the stepfather to his Son at the grand intervention of the incarnation.
Joseph, the Stepfather of God
