“This man was righteous and devout, looking of the consolation of Israel”…”And (she) continued to speak of Him to all those who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem” (Luke 2:25,38).
Both Simeon and Anna possessed a quality of faith we would do well to emulate. Their’s was a faith that continually looked forward to the unfolding purposes of God. They remind us that God is not one to be grasped and held but, rather, is to be continually sought. The closer we draw to Him the more He becomes our longing and passionate pursuit. Faith is not a static event but a dynamic relationship.
