    Joseph and Mary had to let a lot of things go because of their faith journey. They left everything they knew when they headed to Egypt. And in one sense, what they were sacrificing was their comfort at the deepest level.

    Some people are good at the immediate. They can jump right into anything, but they are not good at “keeping on keeping on.” And other people are good at lasting, but it takes them a long time to get there.

    This week, as we think about obedience and how to live it out, I want to look at five actions Joseph took that showed his obedience to God. When the angel appeared to Joseph in a dream, he told Joseph, “Do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 1:20b NIV). So that’s what Joseph did: “When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife” (Matthew 1:24 NIV). He didn’t hesitate. He just did it!

    We’re all familiar with the Christmas story. But have you ever stopped to put yourself in Joseph’s shoes? Here was a guy who found out his fiancée was pregnant, claiming she was visited by an angel and told she’s carrying God’s baby. And she wanted him to believe her!

    Some of us hesitate to commit ourselves to developing an intentional plan of growth that requires accountability or relationship with others because we believe spiritual growth is a personal and private matter. We choose to believe each person develops in his or her own way at his or her own rate.

    Growth in the human soul requires a commitment to grow. A person must want to grow, decide to grow, and make an effort to grow.

    Millions of Christians have grown older without ever growing up; they act as though spiritual growth is automatic. They may have a plan to save for retirement. They may have a plan for sending their kids to college. But they don’t have a strategy for enriching their souls. They leave the single most important facet of human existence to chance!

    Have you ever felt like you don’t have any more love to give? Love is exhausting. It’s work to really love. Most people don’t understand that their physical condition has a strong impact on their relationships and ability to love.
