Ever feel like much of life is spent waiting? Today I am waiting on a contractor, waiting on the dryer to finish drying my clothes, waiting on Spring to truly arrive, waiting on the Resurrection. We all spend a good deal of our time in the game of waiting.
I wonder what Jesus waited on? His ministry to start? His disciples to “get it”? the end of his life? the coming of the Kingdom?
What did Jesus do while waiting? He healed and preached. He went into the desert to pray. He ate with friends and dreamed of a world where the reign of God was a reality. He waited and acted at the same time. He waited and listened to God. He waited and loved. We should wait with the urgency and patience of Jesus.
What are you waiting on?
