Learning from Luke: Presenting in Faith

Learning from Luke: Presenting in Faith Sermon Audio Here


Luke 2:22-38

Brown highway signs indicate “historic spots”, of recreational or cultural interest. These aren’t planned; history HAPPENS. What “markers” might you encounter as you live your life?

As Our Lives Unfold, We Discover:

Simple Faithfulness Leads to Praise
Luke 2:22-32

  • v22/24 Mary and Joseph, presenting their child, were moved by the Word
  • v25/27 Simeon, waiting for Messiah to appear, was moved by the Spirit
  • v28/32 Simeon was moved to praise God by Mary & Joseph’s faithfulness to the Word

Lifelong Faithfulness Leads to Reflection
Luke 2:33-38

  • v33/35 Reminder: Life of Faith not always easy
  • v36/38 Reminder: Life of Faith not always fast; God’s time, not ours

The rest of the chapter gives us a snapshot of Jesus’ life as a boy; He was living out a life of faithfulness as He saw modeled from His earthly parents. Vs 52: He grew in stature and favor with God and man. May our lives unfold in such a way that this is true of us as well.
