Word-Filled Wednesday ~#49~ The Light of Revelation & Glory

PASSAGE: "Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous & devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, & the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms & praised God, saying:

"'Sovereign Lord, as You have promised,
You now dismiss Your servant in

For my eyes have seen Your salvation,

which You have prepared in the
sight of all people,
a light for revelation to the Gentiles
& for glory to
Your people Israel.'

~Luke 2:25-32
[all emphasis mine]

LESSON LEARNED: Never look at the manger without seeing the cross.
