In this message from Luke 2:29-32, Alistair Begg encourages each of us to embrace the Lord Jesus as Simeon did, finding in him the fulfillment of all that God has promised.

Fasting, Weeping, Lamenting

In response to Haman's threat against the Jewish people, Mordecai grieved publicly and made sure that Esther was informed of the danger. Esther did not rely on her status as queen for protection.
