An Odd Life

The Common Rule

It is an odd life we spend as Christians, living in constant and vigilant expectation for something to happen. But when you think about it, aren’t we all living life this way? Hoping that some moment will come that will change everything else? The difference for Christians, then, is that we stake our lives on it and say it out loud. We live in faith that such a fantastic story is actually true. We hang everything on the idea that Jesus really did come, and really is coming again. Think of a child this week, waiting for Christmas morning. They can’t think about anything else. Everything is hanging on it. Now consider that that is the right Christian posture towards life — we’re waiting for the King to come back. Everything is hanging on it.
