Paul said, “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.” That is the highest awareness of our sojourn here, and we don’t often get there—to that place where we, the Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, truly realize that is what we are doing.
We think it is something we choose to do all on our own and that we somehow nobly put on Jesus’ garments. We rarely realize that it is not in the actions we perform--something we choose to do one day but not the next--that we are living out our calling. Despite our fleshly ignorance, it happens; this living Christ happens. It is WHO WE ARE, a product of Him revealing Himself to us.
We are all like Simeon waiting to see the infant Jesus at the temple or the wise men guided by a star or shepherds visited by angels. Perhaps in some curious way, we who exist in time at this moment are even more “blessed” than they because we believe, having not seen with our mortal eyes.
Yes, we are weighed down by distractions, tangled in our own vain pursuits, owners of a knowing that we are not quite sure how to dispense. BUT, we who are His are also all in line to see Jesus. Surely, the entire world is in line to see Jesus, and one day there will be no cases of mistaken identity. The Glory of God is coming and will be revealed to us all, even though we most often do not realize that that is what we all hunger for.
In a moment, in a shout, all we have been waiting for, every unsatisfied longing that we have dulled with the temporal, will burst forth upon us, and the realization of our greatest desire will burn through us, transfiguring this half-existence into the knowing that we have carried inside us since our Creator spoke us into being. We will see and know and understand, and we shall be like Him, not based on our efforts, but because of His Appearing.
Today, we are the hurried shoppers, seekers of the perfect gift, living out only hints at a far greater Glory coming. We wait for More, but we can ask now. We can ask now to see the stars—the markers—the hints of the Promise. Creation itself reflects the coming rescue, and if we are given eyes to see, we can taste the Promise so that our hearts will be strengthened as we continue our journey toward the One drawing us closer.
He is not forgotten. The very fact that we live constantly unsatisfied is a reflection of our longing. It won’t always be like this. There will be a day when we can stop seeking. We’re all in line now, whether we know it or not, and His Appearing will prove worth the wait. Glory to God in the Highest! Peace on earth, goodwill toward men!
