This is the Bible Minute.
When Jesus was eight days old, Mary and Joseph took Him to be circumcised according to the Law. The Holy Spirit moved Simeon to meet them in the temple courts. And there Simeon took Jesus in his arms and praised God, saying:
"For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel."
That's Luke 2:31-32.
Have you seen the Lord’s salvation? Have you experienced the peace that Jesus brings? That little baby Simeon held grew up and went to the cross to die for your sins. And it's only through Jesus that we can have peace with God.
If you haven't come to know Jesus as your Savior, we invite you to find out more.
