THE STORY OF JESUS: Luke 2:25-32
“For my eyes have seen your salvation…” (Luke 2:30)
Unlike Simeon, I cannot see my salvation with my physical eyes.
But I have been “moved by the Spirit” to see it by faith.
How do I explain it: I sense it, I feel it, I know it deep inside.
Whenever I see Jesus in my mind, I am also moved to praise God.
When I see Jesus in His humble love and gracious kindness.
When I see Jesus patiently loving and serving His disciples.
When I see Jesus being tortured and crucified for no reason.
When I see Jesus alive, smiling and accepting me as His friend.
Consolation fills me, and I am encouraged, energized, hopeful!
Jesus is presented “in the sight of all nations”.
Everyone can see what I see, and experience what I experience.
It does take the eyes of faith, being moved by the Spirit.
For me, thinking about Jesus is life transforming.
Like Simeon, I am moved to joy and praise, as I hold Jesus in my heart.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, when I think about You, I am moved by Your Spirit. May this joy, hope and peace energize me for today. May others see Jesus today too!
