Luke 2:22-40

As Jewish parents of a firstborn son, Mary and Joseph faithfully fulfill what the law prescribes. Jesus is consecrated to the Lord. They hear amazing things about their son as revealed by the Holy Spirit to Simeon. He also tells Mary that Jesus’ mission will not be without suffering.

Jesus, you were destined for greatness but not without great price. Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for my salvation.
