why Joseph went

Luke 2:1-4

Luk 2:1 Those are the days when it happened: a royal command came from Caesar Augustus to register all his economic empire for taxation.
Luk 2:2 This registration first happened by order of Quirinius before he was governor of Syria.
Luk 2:3 And everyone came to be registered, each one to his own city of origin.
Luk 2:4 That is why Joseph also travelled from the Galilean city of Nazareth, to the Judean city of David which was called Bethlehem, because he descended from the family and clan of David,

why Joseph went

God moved the mind of the emperor to make a royal command, and that was why Joseph went to Bethlehem. And, God sent an angel. And, God moved a prophet to predict it. And, God enabled Joseph and Mary to travel. Many circumstances conspired to bring that young couple to Bethlehem so that Mary could give birth to Jesus at that place, on that day.

As we look back on our lives, we also can see the hand of God at work in the commands of men, and the coincidences of life. He is sovereign, and active.

LORD, thank you for sending us and supporting us wherever we go, as you wish.
