Next Week’s Message The Supporting Cast of Christmas Simeon: Looking for Jesus Luke 2
Successful events of history are seldom a solo act: There are always key and supporting people behind the event. The birth of Jesus is no exception. Joseph and Mary clearly get top billing for the birth of Jesus, but behind the scene are numerous people: One such person is Simeon.
We don’t know much about his personal life but what we do know is significant. Simeon was a good and godly man who was patiently waiting for the fulfillment of God’s promised Messiah. On the Sunday before Christmas his story of expectantly looking and waiting for Jesus is worth our attention.
