WHAT DO YOU SEE? — LUKE 2:22-54
When Simeon and Anna, who had waited a long time for God to rescue Israel, meet the baby Jesus in the temple, their expectations are disrupted for GOOD -- for the good of all people. They hoped that God might act for a portion of people but instead discovered their God is a God for all people. In a tumultuous time, Simeon is attentive to the Spirit, "My eyes have seen your salvation." We live in a time that is disturbing for many people. Where is God desiring to disrupt our view of how God, our Savior, is engaged in our world? When you look at Jesus, what do you see? May we see beyond this election, our Jesus who is the true Lord of justice and truth.
