Do you find favor with God?

2:52 Luke “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." (NIV)

Jesus grew up with His family and in His community. He grew in wisdom. He continued to learn. He continued to study the scrolls and what the prophets had foretold. We too must continue to grow in wisdom by recalling His Word often!

What do your eyes see each day?

2:30 Luke “For my eyes have seen your salvation,” (NIV)

Jesus was presented to the priest at the temple on the 8th day. He was consecrated to the Lord. The priest, Simeon, was waiting for the day when the promised Messiah would come. He knew that this was that Messiah coming to us as a baby Jesus. Simeon gives praise and glory to God that he is able to witness this arrival of the Savior. Let us also keep our eyes fixed on His Word and on that which is pleasing to God. He is our Salvation from sin and death. It is a gift which we will enjoy… forever!

Let your soul glorify the Lord…

1:46 Luke “And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord“. (NIV)

When Mary visits Elizabeth, she realizes a little bit of what God has in mind for her. She is humbled by it. She offers a song of praise for what He will do through her. In it, she gives ALL the praise and glory to God. She shows her deep commitment to His plans for her and for the child, Jesus, who will become the Savior to the world. Let us all remember to give God the glory for what He has done in and through us!! May our lives bring glory to Him!!
