We live in amazing times.
We order things online, and we fully expect to receive them. The merchant tells us what day to expect our package, and we look for it on that day. We can even track the shipment to find out where it is on its journey to us.
Faith doesn’t work like that.
You have promised that Jesus is coming again. But you’ve not told us when. And we can’t track him; we can’t know where he is on his way to us.
So help us be always on the lookout. Let us live in constant anticipation.
Let our waiting be an active waiting. Help us do all we can to be the presence of Christ in the world here and now.
While we keep an eye on the heavens, looking for Jesus, let us keep the other eye on the earth, looking for people to love and help.
