A time for every purpose under heaven:
Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
I am not going to do a study here on what Simeon's words might mean, but in today's language, perhaps, it could be said, that he (Jesus) is going to shake things up and sort things out. Jesus came to save us, to bring us into salvation. He himself causes people to make a choice.
This week, I have been thinking about the verse that says, "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God" (Rom. 1:16). Jesus is the answer. Jesus said he is the way, the truth, and the life; because he wanted us to know that it is all about him - living in him and letting him live through us.
The hope of the world is Jesus. The gospel is the news about his coming to save us and bring us into God's kingdom, here and now.
Blessings to you,
