When Gabriel announced the birth of Jesus to Mary, she submitted to God at great personal cost. At just the right time, God also sent an angel to prepare Joseph for his role in the birth of the Messiah. Alistair Begg explains that Joseph's response was grounded in his character and shaped by his commitment to the Word of God. This kind of submission to God requires courage in the face of shame and rejection, but our hope is found in the Lord Jesus Christ, who became man to endure shame and meet our greatest need.
