Friends in Christ Weekly Message
February 1, 2014

A man named Simeon was in Jerusalem. He was righteous and devout. He eagerly anticipated the restoration of Israel, and the Holy Spirit rested on him. The Holy Spirit revealed to him that he wouldn’t die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. Led by the Spirit, he went into the temple area. Meanwhile, Jesus’ parents brought the child to the temple so that they could do what was customary under the Law. Simeon took Jesus in his arms and praised God. He said,
    Now, master, let your servant go in peace according to your word, because my eyes have seen your salvation. You prepared this salvation in the presence of all peoples. It’s a light for revelation to the Gentiles and a glory for your people Israel.
Luke 2:25-32 (CEB*)

The desire of many people is for something which benefits them personally. Not so with Simeon. His most fervent desire was to see an era ushered in which would not only restore his people Israel, but be a light of revelation for all peoples.

What is your most fervent dream? Is it for all to come to accept the revelation which leads to salvation?

Bill Samuel
