As we begin a New Year, we have so much to be grateful for! We are blessed to be able to learn at Trinity Lutheran Church and School where we can listen to God’s Word and learn about Jesus our Savior.
For Religion, we learned about the faithful servant Simeon. Simeon longed to see the coming of the Savior and the Holy Spirit told him that he would not die until he met the Savior Jesus. Simeon finally met Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus at the Temple, and then took baby Jesus in his arms and proclaimed, “Sovereign Lord, now let your servant die in peace, as you have promised. I have seen your salvation, which you have prepared for all people. He is a light to reveal God to the nations, and he is the glory of your people Israel!” (Luke 2:29-32) Simeon’s faith was incredible in God’s promises.
