Sermon - "A Sign of the Times"
Features - 1st Sunday After Christmas Day
Scriptures - Isaiah 61:10-62:3; Psalm 148; & Luke 2:22-40
Theme - Jesus was a sign of the times for Simeon and Anna. Jesus' presence was a light to the Gentiles and glory to the people of Israel. Simeon and Anna received the Christ child with praise and thanksgiving after Mary and Joseph arrived at the temple. Simeon and Anna encouraged the new parents, blessed their newborn son, and prayed for them day and night. We can find strength in our faith from the people who encourage, bless, and pray for us.
