Pastor Mark ends the "Christmas in Matthew" series with a short, practical message about joy. The sermon explores the joy of the maji. They were "overjoyed." The "joy-killing" attitude of King Herod and the Chief Priests is contrasted with a plan for celebrating the birthday of the King throughout the new year.
This message is a first person message, with Pastor Mark Friz appearing as Joseph "Davidson." Joseph is proud of his Davidic ancestry, but doubts whether to trust his fiancee, Mary, who says she is pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Later, his faith is challenged as he wonders why God made is so difficult for him to be the father of Jesus. Joseph shares how he "faithed it through" in spite of times when he doubted his beliefs and belived his doubts.
