Dec 10/11 – Simeon’s Search – Lutheran Weekend Worship

This song is usually kept back for the post-Christmas/Epiphany time, but it is a theme that characterized God’s advent from the start. God sent Jesus to be “for the glory of Israel” (mentioned in Simeon’s second line); but this glory was that he was the Light of God “to shine on the Gentile community,” a theme that Luke displays in his gospel and in the book of Acts as the very plan of God. Through Simeon’s song we are led to celebrate God’s love for the world and to let God’s Light shine through us. Listen-In or Watch below.
