Worship While You Wait

December 18, 2022 • Jay Thomas • 1 Peter 5:1–4, 1 Peter 4:7–19

This week we continue the Advent theme of waiting. We might call this God's gift of forced expectation, so that we actually live in light of the end (rather than for the immediacy of superficiality of the present). To that end, we are taking a bit of a detour in 1 Peter. For reasons I will explain on Sunday, this book makes sense for us to peruse in terms of Advent. The Well has been studying it. God has put it in my lap, in a sense. This book is ruggedly focused on how to be in the J-Curve trough, waiting upon God. And what we will see is that waiting is not stationary. It is beautiful activity. True waiting leads to humble and loving ministry to one another as we anticipate and even reflect the glory of Jesus.

Waiting for Glory

December 11, 2022 • Jay Thomas • Luke 2:22–38

Advent largely reminds us that waiting is the disposition of the Christian life. We are called to live fully for God, to serve His purposes, and to do good works, yes and amen, all the while we are waiting for something all of that is preparing us for and pointing us to... the arrival of our King. Sometimes we forget that. For the powerful, we can forget that and use our money and influence to front-load heaven. For the weak, we can become despondent and maybe even frustrated with the Lord. We should embrace the wait and all that comes with it, including the shadows and the hungers. Simeon and Anna from Luke 2:22-38 will teach us what godly and glorious waiting looks like.
