My eyes have seen

For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations. Luke 2:30-31

Simeon was a righteous man. He loved the Lord. And he ached for his people who had for centuries lived under occupation. He knew that one day God would send someone who would be a consolation of Israel. God in his grace had revealed to Simeon by the Holy Spirit, that he would in fact send the messiah in his own day. He would see him with his own eyes. That same Spirit stirred in Simeon's heart instructing him to go to the temple court on one particular day. When he arrived there, he noticed Mary and Joseph, a young couple who had brought their child to be dedicated. The instant he saw the baby- he took him in his arms and prayed to the Lord and thanked him that his "eyes had seen the salvation of the Lord". He would be a light to the Gentiles and the glory of Israel". The messiah had come and Simeon had seen him and for that he was thankful. My prayer for our community is that this Christmas as we prepare for the business of this season we might also prepare spiritually by reading Luke & asking God; give me eyes to see your salvation. May it be so- in Jesus Name, Amen.

Grace and peace from Marcus
