The scripture for today tells us about predictions from the Prophets about the coming of the Savior.  When we think about Advent we are anticipating and expecting God’s fulfillment of his promises.  It was in that time, as now, people are impatient and if they don’t see it, they won’t believe.  However, to God who is eternal, one day is a thousand years on earth.

The Lord isn’t slow to fulfill his promise but is showing patience and grace.  The perceived delay is also allowing more time for people to come to saving knowledge and have an opportunity to repent.  It isn’t that God is lazy or unconcerned.

The birth of Jesus came at an unexpected time, and for many, in an unexpected way.  We go through Advent anticipating the second Advent or coming of Christ at the culmination of all things.  Scripture says, “like a thief in the night.”

So, then we should live like each day could be the last.  Sharing Christ with all, thanking God for his patience and grace.  Don’t get carried away by all the talk but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior.  Today could be the day, are you ready?
