Simeon took Him in his arms and praised God, saying: ‘Sovereign Lord, as You have promised, You may now dismiss Your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen Your salvation, which You have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.’ Luke 2:28-32
Today you are invited to consider Simeon’s reaction when he, at last, saw the Child he recognised as the Messiah. What was your response when you found Jesus? How did you feel? Who did you tell? When did you last tell someone about Jesus, your Saviour? Pray for that person that they too may come to know Him as their Saviour and for all those you meet in the coming days.
May God give you the courage to speak about Jesus to the people you meet in the days ahead.
