Living In-Between

We wait in the intermediate state, a transitional phase between Christ’s first and second comings.

Advent is an in-between time of year, all about what was and what is to be, about what has already happened and what has yet to occur. It’s a time of anticipation, of expectancy. To live the Christian journey with expectancy at a most basic level is to be a resident of two worlds. We live fully in the here and now, with all the joys and sorrow, victories and setbacks of mortal, flesh-and-blood life. And we live with anticipation in the life to come. We live between world and worship. We are in between the coming of Christ and his coming again, living the “now” with hopeful expectancy that empowers us and sustains us.

Peace,

Dr. Leonard Ezell
