As FBC begins our celebration of the Christmas season (tomorrow is the first Sunday in Advent), I hope you will remember the story of Simeon. (Luke 2) An old man. He has waited for years for “the consolation of Israel”. Trusting a promise from God that he would not die before He saw the Christ, Simeon came into the temple just as Mary and Joseph did. Praising God, he spoke a clear prophesy and felt at peace, ready to die. Great story.
Day 9 –Will you pray for the Senior Adults in the FBC family?
Will you thank God for their service and example? Will you choose one and hold him/her before the Father? Ask for health and undiminished strength. Ask God to refute the secular idea that at some point all of us just “fade away”. “Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died, his eye was not dim, nor his vigor abated.” (Deuteronomy 34:7) Take time with this assignment. “The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man. . .(James 5:16)
RE Verse reading–Luke 5:12-26. I look forward to seeing you in the morning!
