"Waiting for Christmas" Luke 2:25-38

 How many of you have a hard time waiting for Christmas. You just can’t wait -till the season gets here.

What are you waiting for this Christmas? Are you longing for anything? What are you expecting to receive? Are you looking forward to anything special this Christmas?

In the Gospel of Luke, we come across two people -who make their appearance towards the end of the Christmas story.   Read Luke 2: 25-38

We’re introduced to Simeon in Luke 2:25. “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 upon Him.”

Verse 26 - “It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.”

Verse 38 - “Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem.”

There are three action steps from this passage that will help you experience God’s comfort and forgiveness this Christmas.

Action Step #1: Become a marveler
Action Step #2: Become a mover.
Action Step #3: Become a Messenger
