According to Your Word
These words come from the Song of Simeon known as the Nunc Dimittis. The Lord had promised Simeon that he would not die until he had seen his Savior. Simeon sang this song after he had seen the Christ Child in the temple at Jesus’ presentation (Luke 2:25–32).
We had decided to name our son Simeon, weeks before we found out that he would not live long past his birth. His name was so fitting since our Simeon, too, had “seen” his Savior before he departed in peace on May 12th, 2010. These words now remind us that we cling to God’s promises of His grace and mercy upon us through faith in Christ Jesus,
which faith comes from His true and faithful Word.
Mission Statement: “According to Your Word exists to produce and distribute quality Lutheran educational and devotional resources for Christian families and churches for the teaching and training of all of God’s children.”
Who We Are: According to Your Word is an association of confessional Lutherans who are interested in helping others know their Savior, Jesus Christ, more thoroughly as well as teach others about Him and help them to grow in their knowledge and love. We consider that the best way to do this is the same way that Christians have been doing it for 2,000 years, through catechesis: through teaching and training.
