Sometimes the uncomfortable in-between of waiting is God's choice for us.

My family would tell you that I’m not a big fan of waiting. I don't like to wait in a doctor's office, or in traffic jams, or in a grocery store line. Maybe you’re like that. You prefer to be on the move. You’d rather be in motion, going somewhere, than be asked to wait.

All the while, Jesus has kept—and will keep—his promise. What can any individual person do to help their church reach its full redemptive potential? Isn’t that what all of us will answer for at the end of our lives?
