Waiting for the Kingdom

We often encounter people who push us outside our comfort zone. It's our tendency in these times to retract, to pull away into places we're more comfortable, with people we're used to. But according to Jesus, unless we become the kinds of people who give ourselves even to those not like us, we haven't discovered the essence of Jesus' new life. To wait for our King is to realize he's already among us, working among those to whom we're called. So what are you waiting for?

From Series: "Waiting for the Kingdom"

Jesus' disciples often asked him when his Kingdom would come in full, when this new life he always talked about would arrive. In response, Jesus told several parables that illustrated the tension we feel as we wait for his kingdom to come on Earth as it is in Heaven. Waiting in Jesus' new reality isn't passive. It's an active, intentional patience. So how do we wait well?
