The Bible is filled with promises. Jesus Christ is one of those promises, a future Messiah who would come to redeem all people. The Old Testament continually points to this redeemer. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, a man named Simeon met him at the Temple. It was revealed earlier to Simeon that he would not taste death until he saw the Christ. He took the child into his arms and exclaimed, “For my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared for all peoples.” Not only was Jesus the promise of God from the beginning of time, but he is also the Hope for the future. The work, words, and future coming of Jesus is a reality we can count on, it means that God is faithful to do what he has promised.
