Joseph married a woman of questionable reputation, lost his reputation in the process, and became a stepfather. He had to move to an unfamiliar place sacrificing his career then drift off the pages of history. It cost him everything to faithfully love and care for Jesus. Then Jesus grew up and taught that following him costs everything. "Deny yourself and take up your cross," he said. Joseph could relate. The cost for him was great and it will be for us, but in losing ourselves we find life.

Ron: At the birth of Christ were there any unsung heroes?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Joseph; he married a woman of questionable reputation, lost his reputation in the process, and became a stepfather. He had to move away from his family to an unfamiliar place sacrificing his career then drift off the pages of history. It cost him everything to faithfully love and care for Jesus.

And then Jesus grew up and taught that following him costs everything. Deny yourself and take up your cross, he said. Joseph knew what that meant. The cost for him was great and it will be for us, but in losing ourselves we, like Joseph, will find life. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
