Are you trying to please God, others, or yourself? When Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the Temple to meet the ceremonial requirements of circumcision and purification, they met two fascinating characters, Simeon and Anna, who added considerably to their understanding of the significance of the baby. Simeon and Anna lived lives oriented and devoted to God alone, and as a result were led by the Holy Spirit to be in the right place at the right time to meet the baby Jesus.
In this message from Luke 2:21-40, Stuart Briscoe introduces us to Simeon and Anna and encourages us to view them as examples of how to orient our lives regardless of our age. This is the 4th teaching in Stuart's 6-message series Coping with Christmas.
