…was as follows…
Matthew writes an abbreviated version of Jesus’ birth than what we see written by Luke in his Gospel.
However, Matthew is a writer of precision. He wants you to follow the steps of Christ.
He is saying, these are the facts, follow them. Nothing is embellished, this is how it was.
Matthew was a reliable witness to the life of Jesus. We can count on his words and testimony.
What is your testimony? Can you stand behind the facts of your walk with Christ?
Some of us walk in a fictional world with Jesus. We have no hard evidence for our beliefs, just soft half-truths, and made up stories.
It’s time to get our stories straight, and the facts in line with our true witness of Jesus.
