  • God’s vision of time is different from ours.
  • The things that we are waiting for God to do are important.  But no less important are the things that He is doing in our lives while we wait.
  • Waiting creates the room for faith to develop.
  • It is faith in the coming Savior that gives us the powerful gifts of joy, humility and gratitude.
  • Jesus also told us that we would receive the power of the Holy Spirit to be His witnesses to the ends of the earth.
  • The angels don’t tell the disciples just to sit tight while they wait for Jesus.  No, they remind us that we have a job to do in the meantime.
  • The power we have is just to be a witness.  A witness doesn’t make something happen.  Witnesses merely speak about what they see. 
  • Our responsibility is to see Christ by faith, to love Him so much, and to long so deeply for His appearance, that any glimpse we get of Him we recognize.  This is our mission even if He comes wrapped in another’s life.
“Anyone who has meditated upon Jesus, must then go out and look for Him in disguise.” ~Mother Theresa
