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.

We all have memory problems: we forget what we should remember, but dwell on what is best forgotten. In this study of Joshua 3 and 4, Alistair Begg explains that God often gives His people memorials as reminders of His faithfulness and provision. Like the Israelites who built a memorial from the stones of the Jordan River, God's people in every generation must take care to commit a record of God's faithfulness to coming generations.
