Advent (#2): In the Meantime – December 4, 2011

“Advent (#2): In the Meantime – December 4, 2011”
Text:  Genesis 29-30
As we look at the story of Jacob being tricked by his uncle, we learn about waiting.  One of our Advent lessons today is that we wait like Jacob waited… we live out our lives—working for the Kingdom of God… because of our love for God.  In our case, of course, we’re not trying to earn anything—instead, our labors for the Master are in response to what He has already and graciously done for us.  And as we fill our waiting with our working, we find that it seems like only a few days because of our love for God.
