Awaiting the day

At the end of John’s account of the Gospel, the evangelist writes:

“There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written.” — John 21:25

Not only would the world never be able to contain the books that would be written, it would also never fully comprehend that things that would be written.

Even right now, we cannot fully comprehend the things that are already written in the Bible. We cannot fully comprehend the words, the teachings, and the deeds of Jesus. We cannot fully comprehend the wisdom of God and the ways He works in our lives.

That is why we await the day when He comes again. We await the day when all these things, including He Himself, will be fully revealed.

In the meantime, we await that day with faith, with hope, with joy, and with love for God and our neighbors.

How are you waiting for that day?
