The Forgotten Man of Christmas  

Luke 2:21-35

Everything about our Saviorís virgin birth and incarnation is unusual and significant . Most of our attention centers on Mary and Joseph, Herod and the wise men, or the shepherds and the angels.

The whole Christmas story is incomplete, however, without Simeon. He was an aged saint. He was a man of fervent faith and hopeful patience. Simeon was:

I. He was a Spirit-led man.

II. He was a Salvation-enlightened man. vs. 28-32

III. He was a Scripture-Learned man. vs. 34, 35

Simeon is often overlooked when we consider the story of Christís birth. But he stands as a great example for us all.
