"JUST LISTEN & OBEY"
 
by Pastor Tony Sutton

     WE DON'T ALWAYS KNOW WHY THINGS HAPPEN THE WAY THEY DO, BUT GOD HAS A PURPOSE, "JUST LISTEN AND OBEY"

"Just Listen & Obey"

  • Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
  • Luke 2:2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
  • Luke 2:3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
  • Luke 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
  • Luke 2:5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
  • Luke 2:6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
  • Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
