Simeon’s song

Posted on Updated on

On Sunday morning, we will explore Luke 2:25-38 and try to understand what it must have been like for Simeon and Anna to have such a vivid expectation of God’s promise being fulfilled in their lifetime.  Living for eternity instead of the immediate begins with a commitment to live expectantly, waiting for the promises of God to be fulfilled.

How much different our lives would be if we spent each moment of each day looking for all that God has promised, walking by faith not by sight, and sensing with joyful anticipation what it will be like to enter each breath of life knowing that God has so much planned for those who are willing to truth Him!

If you are in Raleigh, come worship with us tomorrow.  All week as I have been thinking and praying about this text, I could not keep this song by Michael Card from coming to mind.  If you are like me, you will want to watch it and listen to it several times to get the full impact of what that day in the temple courts must have meant to Simeon–to embrace the promised Messiah in his own arms and look right into the face of the “Word become flesh,” Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of the Most High God…Immanuel, God with us!  Merry Christmas!
