Text: Luke 2:22-35
On this Christmas Eve morning we witness a profound encounter with a man named Simeon and the baby Jesus. As Simeon held the infant in his arms he spoke about the future mission of this child and the stunning effect his life would have on his mother. This moment was the culmination of Simeon’s great longing for God to rescue his people. Throughout the account we discover significant practical lessons and truths for our own lives which affect the way we understand our salvation and even our parenting.
