This Sunday's message: The Song of Zechariah

December 26

Today’s Reading: Luke 2:25; Numbers 14:21-24; Psalm 26:1-3; Philippians 2:12-16
You might be thinking, “why are we still talking about Christmas?” Personally, I feel like we should celebrate Christmas and Easter all year round as we wait for the Lord’s return. Nevertheless, our reading plan will take us through the entire month of December. This week should be a familiar text, as we just looked at Simeon’s song a couple of Sundays ago. Simeon’s song is very relevant to this post-Christmas period because these events that Luke records for us occurs after the birth of Jesus. In fact, the premise of Simeon’s part of the story is waiting. He was waiting for the coming of the Messiah, just as we are today. This verse today reminds us that Simeon was devout and righteous. Again, we don’t know much about this man, but that is how he was known. How are you known? Post-Christmas, will you still be joyful? Will you still be generous? A regular church attender? A devout person? The “spirit of Christmas” shouldn’t go away just because it’s now the 26th of December. Keep that “spirit” alive!
