“The LORD has made known His salvation.
His righteousness has He openly showed in the sight of the heathen.”
The Spirit sent the old prophet named Simeon to the temple to see the baby Jesus, and as soon as he saw the child, he exclaimed, “Lord, my eyes have seen your salvation!” (Lk. 2:29–30).
Jesus is God’s salvation and God’s righteousness, in person. The verse above, written when the Son was still hidden and unknown, promised that one day, God would make His beloved Son known to all the earth. How blessed we are to have been born after He did it!
Think about it. We can now know God’s salvation and righteousness because God has revealed him! What a precious gift! Only a fool would refuse the precious invitation to come and know God’s Son, the righteousness and salvation of God, for he, the man Jesus, is the best friend anyone could ever have.
