She Spake of Him

 And there was one Anna, a prophetess… And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked  for redemption in Jerusalem.

Luke 2:36a, 38

Anna, like Simeon, was waiting for the Christ to come.  And when she saw Him- Jesus Christ in the flesh, she did two things that all of us who have seen Him should do and be doing.

1. She “gave thanks likewise unto the Lord”.
– When she saw the baby Jesus, the Saviour of the world, she immediately gave thanks to the Lord.  That should be our attitude when we meet the Lord Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.  We should be thankful.  Not everything in life is going to go our way.  We are going to have problems and trials and difficulties.  But whatever we may face, we should remain in a spirit of thanksgiving because we know Him.  If we have nothing else in the world to be thankful for, the simple thought that we know Him should be enough to fill our hearts with thanks.

2. She “spake of him to all them that looked for redemption…”
– After she met Jesus, she immediately began to speak to others about Him.  Again, this should be our goal and our attitude.  There are many people in the world who are looking for something.  They are searching for the truth and they don’t know where to find it.  We know where to find it!  “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” Jesus said.  Sometimes people don’t even know exactly what they are looking for, but we know.  We should be speaking of Him to all who will listen. 

When we meet Jesus and if we know Jesus, we should be always thanking Him and speaking of Him to others, just as the prophetess Anna did two thousand years ago.
