Sunday Sermon Outline: Simeon's Song

Simeon's Song
Luke 2:21-35


Introduction:
     “He was in the world, and although the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. 11 He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him” (John 1:10-11).


I. The Stage is Set vs. 21-24
     Luke 2:21-24, “And when eight days had passed, before His circumcision, His name was then called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the days for their purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him up to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord 23 (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every firstborn male that opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”), 24 and to offer a sacrifice according to what was said in the Law of the Lord, “A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.””


     Galatians 4:4, “When the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law.”


II. The Spirit is Sent vs. 25-27
     Luke 2:25-27, “And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. 27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, …”


III. The Song is Sung vs. 28-32
     Luke 2:28-32, “Then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, 29 “Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, According to Your word; 30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation, 31 Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, 32 A Light of revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.”


     “I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2).


IV. The Sword is Swung vs. 33-35
     Luke 2:33-35, “And His father and mother were amazed at the things which were being said about Him. 34 And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is appointed for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and for a sign to be opposed— 35 and a sword will pierce even your own soul—to the end that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed.””


Conclusion:
     “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6).
