Luke 8:16-18

When Mary and Joseph presented the baby Jesus in the temple, Simeon held the child in his arms and proclaimed that Jesus was the light to reveal God’s glory to the Gentiles. We have seen that light shine in Jesus Christ through the gospel. There is no need for us to hide that light, to hide that gift of faith in a drawer. We can reflect that light on all who sit in darkness wherever we may find them. A dark world waits to be led by Christ’s light shining among us.
