Luke in 40 - Luke 2 continued

Luke 2:22-52

Today we read about Jesus’ visit to the temple and how a man and a woman see Jesus for who he really is.

There is a man, Simeon, who the Holy Spirit speaks through. When Jesus is brought to the temple, Simeon cradles that child and proclaims that this child, the Messiah, is the one who will bring glory to all. Now Simeon can rest, for the Christ child has come.

This is followed up by Anna, a prophet, who basically lived in the temple. Upon seeing Jesus she overcome with joy and praises God to everyone she encounters.

How have you seen people respond to the Good News of the Christ child?
