Worship Service on Sunday, January 28, 2024.
In our sermon today, we explore the story of an encounter between Simeon, Mary, Joseph, and the infant Jesus at the temple in Jerusalem. Simeon, a righteous and devout man, had been promised by God that he would not die until he was allowed to see the Messiah. Guided by the Holy Spirit, Simeon goes to the temple and recognizes Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah, destined to bring salvation and light to the world. Simeon’s story is an example of unwavering faith and the fulfillment of God’s promises. Simeon’s faith in God and the anticipation of the coming of the Messiah encourages us as we eagerly await Christ’s Second Coming.
