2023 Advent - Day 18



As you prepare yourself for worship, listen to the following song, and sing along if you know it: "Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery" by Matt Papa

As you worship, meditate on the purpose of Jesus. 


Read the following passage: Luke 2: 22-35

As you study, consider the importance of Simeon praising Jesus in the temple. Then, answer the questions below to dive deeper!

Reflection Questions: 

  • Have you ever had to wait a really long time for God to answer one of your prayers? What did that teach you about patience and the goodness of His timing?
  • What did finally seeing Jesus mean to Simeon? What makes his response so powerful?
  • How does Simeon say that Jesus’s ministry will radically impact the world? Was he correct?
  • What does Simeon’s prophecy teach you about the purpose of Jesus, and how does this purpose reveal what is in people’s hearts?


Lord we proclaim Your majesty as the Light of revelation to us and the Glory of Israel! We thank You for Your glorious purpose to be our Liberator from sin and death!
