Luke 2…The Picture of Devotion
Mary! So devoted to God, she faces the shame of an unwed pregnancy and gives birth in a manger as she obediently follows her betrothed to his home town to be registered. Simeon! Being a devoted man of God, he was filled with the Spirit and was led to his life’s pursuit of seeing Jesus.
Anna! Completely devoted to prayer, she was able to see things from God’s perspective and rejoiced at the redemption for all peoples in Christ.
These three show us what devotion to God looks like: personal action, filled with the Spirit and committed to prayer.
