Awaiting Our Baby, Awaiting the Christ

Posted: September 14, 2010 in Uncategorized

Our baby boy is due to be born in less than a month and some change. This means, technically, he could come at any time. As a result of this, he’s constantly on my mind!

I want to hear his cry. I long to meet him in person. I want to know what he looks like (These photos were taken just last Friday).

I have been readjusting my life and how I live to prepare for the arrival of our son, that Am and I may be able to give parenting our best shot.

He’s coming when he wants. His coming is imminent, no doubt it could be today or a few weeks from now. I’m subconsciously counting down the days until he gets here; his arrival is compelling me to live for the moment he gets here.

In the midst of all this waiting, I suddenly realized this is a good analogy as to how we are to be waiting for the Lord to return.

If I am waiting for my son in such a way, how much more am I to live as such in light of Christ’ second coming?

Do we long to see Christ? Is his coming often on our mind? Do you want to know what he looks like, are we longing together to meet him in person?

He’s the King of glory, our Warrior and Savior amidst a world of sin and despair.

Does his coming urge us to live in a certain way?

Next time it storms in your neck of the woods, take a second glance at the lightning and may the thunder which follows make loud the truth that “just as the lighting comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matt. 24:27).

On this day, whether you’re having a good one, a troubling one, or facing tough decisions in a chaotic world, take hope and be comforted – our Sovereign Savior is coming.

May we unite together as an expectant people having as our hope and prayer, “Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus.”
