Preacher: Rev. Henry Coates
Text: Matthew 1:18-25
Title: Joseph: Radical obedience
Big Idea: The word decide, or decision, means to cut off or to kill. Making a decision leads one into making a choice that closes off other options. Joseph had to make a decision between socially acceptable norms (quietly divorcing his pregnant betrothed) and radically obeying God’s will and risking shame from his culture.
