Day 7 (Christmas)
Day 7 - Worship by All Nations (Song of Simeon):
After prophet Isaiah has reviewed the tale of national wickedness in his time, he proclaims to the people that their light has arrived, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon them. His prophecy was fulfilled in Christ. Jesus said He is the light of the world. Jesus in His first coming, i.e. Christmas brings a revelation to the Gentiles and not just the Jews – here we see a picture of the gospel – Jesus comes as the true light to guide all people.
Luke 2:25-32 / Isaiah 60:1-6
What Simeon were like so should we be: faithful to God’s promises and were looking for God’s redemption.
Gracious Lord, thank You for Your salvation through Jesus Christ, who has paid a high price to redeem us. Help us to be faithful to follow You and to make You name know in the next generation, so all nations shall worship you. Amen.
