Christ’s obedience, our salvation

Luke 2:21-52
Jesus ‘fulfilled all righteousness’(Matthew 3:15). His circumcision and presentation to the Lord was ‘according to the law of Moses’(21-24; Leviticus 12:1-8). Jesus’ obedience was always more than mere conformity to ‘the written code’. He was walking ‘in the Spirit’. He was filled with ‘the Spirit of the living God’(2 Corinthians 3:3,6). His obedience came ‘from the heart’ and His ‘praise’ came ‘not from men but from God’(Romans 6:17; 2:29). What joy there was for Simeon and Anna! This was ‘salvation’, ‘redemption’(30,38). As you journey through life, don’t ‘lose Jesus’(43-45). Keep close to Him! If you do ‘lose Him’, where will you find Him again? – ‘In the temple’(46). Have you lost your way? Find your way back to ‘the sanctuary of God’- and things will start to fall into place again (Psalm 73:16-17)!
