Play Audio

Family is a very important part of our lives.  We love them, we sometimes struggle with them, but in the end, family is family.  However, those of us who follow Christ have an adopted family.  The Bible is clear about this, “He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ,“ (Eph. 1:5).

What if we told you that the birth of Jesus was “uneventful,” would you believe us?  Would it offend you to think of Christ’s birth that way?  Well, according to Matthew, the first Gospel in the New Testament, Jesus’ birth was precipitated by a dream – just a dream.  Matthew gives the reader no other […]
