It feels good to be chosen for a special project, although sometimes it is scary and causes us to feel nervous. Joseph and Mary were given the most special project ever given to a man and a woman and they both felt a little afraid and nervous. God had been working out His plan to send a Savior to rescue people from sin. He told the prophets in the Old Testament that the Messiah was coming. Mary and Joseph were instrumental in God’s plan.
"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only son into the world that we might live through him." 1 John 4:9
Angels Spoke to Mary and Joseph | Matthew 1:18-24; Luke 1:26-56
Questions for family discussion
1. Who did the angel appear to while awake?
2. Who did the angel speak to in person?
3. Who was told she was going to be the mother of Jesus?
4. What did the angel tell Mary and Joseph to name the baby?
