Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Luke's Gospel and here he focuses on Anna (2:36-38) — a propetess who served God until the age of 84, even as a widow. She worshiped with passion, with hunger, with prayer, with fastings, with evangelism.
She was a woman after God's own heart. This character, Anna, models not only for all women but for every senior saint (the 'aged') how to live in undistracted worship & undiminished praise in the elderly years.
"My Eyes Have Seen Your Salvation! Beholding the Face of the God-Man!"
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Luke's gospel and teaches on "Simeon." Simeon was an elderly man waiting for the Messiah to appear. And when God providentially brought Simeon into the Temple to behold the newborn baby, the God-Man, Simeon praised God and gave a prophecy of the future life & work of Jesus. He would, in fact, be the dividing line so that many would receive Him for eternal life & many would reject Him for eternal death.
