The already and the not yet. This Advent we live in a Both/And space. We, as the Church and as individuals, pause and look back at Jesus’ first coming as our redeemer, and look forward to His second coming as our restorer and find ourselves sitting right in the middle, celebrating what we have already received and longing for what is yet to come. We have been freed from the darkness of sin and death, and yet, when we look at our world, we see that all is not right. And so we wait, and we
work, we watch, and we weep, longing for and knowing that God is working to make all things new, joining him as he leads in the both/and restoration.
