For Crying Out Loud

Mar 15, 2018

I've come to the realization I'm a bit of a slow learner.  A couple weeks ago, I was preparing to preach on Luke 2:25-38, the story of Jesus's dedication at the temple in Jerusalem.  I researched the historical cultural aspects of the passage and was intrigued by the prophetic message of Simeon and its implications for proclaiming the gospel.  I was particularly excited because of a couple of people I knew didn't know the Lord who would be there.  But there was this little passage at the end about a little known prophetess named Anna.  She really doesn't say much and I thought I would just touch on her story as we are working way verse by verse through Luke.  God had another plan.
