Behold: December 19

This week’s readings are based on the “Behold” sermon series. For this series, we are looking at what it truly means to BEHOLD, gaze at, grasp, relish, internalize, and rejoice in Jesus Christ. Start beholding right now by giving thanks for this time with God. Then start reading the text and letting it read you.

Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. 26 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. 27 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.

Luke 2:25-27 (NIV)

This week, we will be looking at the question, “Do you know what I know?” Simeon knew something that altered the course of his life. He would not die before he had seen the Messiah. How did he come upon this knowledge from the Holy Spirit? The answer might be how he is described. This passage says that Simeon was righteous (he lived rightly before people), devout (he lived rightly before God), and dependent (he moved by the Spirit). Each is a way of pursuing the things of God. When we draw near to God, He draws near to us. That’s when we can know Him more and listen clearly. Which of those three descriptions encourages and challenges your faith? What do you need to do this season to better know God?
