“Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.” Matthew 24:44
I notice there is more groping in the dark confusion around the “second coming of Christ” than most anything I’ve witnessed in Christianity. It impacts how we face life in the N O W. This notion of Jesus hovering like a helicopter and calling up the faithful while the reprobates remain behind is the content of the “Left Behind” novels. In the 2014 movie version starring Nicholas Cage, havoc results when baby cribs are missing infants and people don’t show up for work.
“It’s happening all over the world”, says one character in the movie. Such a message creates anxiety and fear among some while it produces agnosticism among others. The notion that our life revolves around the “end of the world” or what takes place at individual death distracts us from our role as Christians in our uncertain world. The words from Matthew’s gospel are N O W words.
We begin Advent with the single word, Anticipation. I find that humans are more interested in what is going to take place today than what might take place “at the end”. Advent anticipates that we may live with new endings and new beginnings by faith. God greets us each day with the rising of the sun. When you are in the dark, one candle offers all the light you need. Anticipate God’s light N O W. ~~Dr. Gregory Adkins
