When we read about Jesus’ birth, we can see some people who had great faith.
Mary must have had a strong faith in God. The angel told her that she would have God’s Son. Mary said (verse 38a), “I am the servant of the Lord God. Let this thing you have said happen to me!” Mary trusted God to take care of her and to help her raise His Son.
Mary’s husband, Joseph, also had great faith. Matthew 1:18-25 tells us that an angel told him Mary would have a baby. Joseph trusted God to help him be a good earthly father for Jesus.
The shepherds who went to see baby Jesus had faith, too. They believed what the angel told them. “So they went running and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby lying in the feeding box” (verse 16).
God wants us to have faith in His Word and His promises. Trust Him today.
