One of our favorite parts of the Christmas story in Luke is when Jesus is presented to Simeon in the temple. A man who was promised by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death until he saw the Christ. Simeon blessed Jesus and cried out to God saying,
"Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel."
Joy to the World, the promised Savior and redeemer of all people has come!
