After being greeted by angels, getting pregnant while still a virgin, giving birth in a barn while shepherds visit saying they saw a choir of angels... I would think that nothing would surprise Mary and Joseph. They had witnessed so many miracles in such a short time, they head to the temple to perform the Jewish rituals. While they are there it just so happened that the Spirit ( here He is again ..) led Simeon to the temple that same day because of a promise God had made to him that he would see the Messiah before he died. So Simeon sees 8 days old Jesus and takes Him in his arms and praised God acknowledging Jesus is the Messiah, the Savior. The light to reveal God to the nations.
And in Luke 2 vs 33 " Joseph and Mary were amazed by what was being said about Jesus."
When was the last time you were AMAZED by Jesus? By what He is doing in your life ? I know in my life I get caught up in the routine of things . When I get amazed it is at Churches doing great things, and people that are doing great deeds. But when do I stop and say "wow God you are amazing at what you are doing in my life"
I want to live a life where I see God doing amazing things not just around me but through me. But I think that takes stepping out of the comfortable, out of the routine, Keeping our eyes open and hearts willing for God to do AMAZING things through us.
