One of the amazing things about God’s story is how He continually uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Some of the people we meet in God’s story we are familiar with because they stand out. People like John the baptist, and the apostles and later on Paul, but the truth is God’s story is full of people that we tend to pass over and not think too much about. For example, people like Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth and now in Luke’s gospel he introduces us to another ordinary person by the name of Simeon. Simeon’s part in God’s story is in showing us what it means to really trust God so completely that you can live in prayerful expectation.
