Simeon had been told by God his life would not end until he beheld the long-awaited Messiah. It was a life lived in anticipation, and in faith. Days passed, weeks, months, and years came and went, with Simeon looking for this promise from his God to be fulfilled. And then…at last. The anxiety was over. The questions were answered. The wondering ceased. God delivered on His promise, and peace entered Simeon’s life for the first time in a long time.
This Sunday we’ll focus on the peace of God coming into our lives, watching the life of this servant for answers on how we can have the same peace in our lives in 2016.
