The Epic Invasion of Light!
Do You See?
In the infancy stories of Jesus Luke helps us see really see who He is.
Luke 2 21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.
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 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, 28 Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:
29 “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace.
30 For my eyes have seen your salvation,31 which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.”
33 The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him.34 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”
When they looked at Jesus they saw:
- Yahweh (the Lord) saves! (21)
- A firstborn male taken to the temple and consecrated to the Lord. (23)
- Salvation which is prepared in the sight of all nations (31)
- Light for revelation to all people and the glory of Israel (32)
- Will cause the falling and rising of many (34)
- Redemption. (38)
… and when they saw they were released in praise!

As 2018 closes and 2019 begins, I want to see You and what You mean to me clearer than ever before. I want to see myself, and the people and situations around me the way You would have me see them. Jesus, You are my Light and my Life and I praise You!
