Paul Taylor - December 19, 2010
Waiting in Love for Christ
Paul follows His glorious description of Christ with his pastoral desire for the Colossians. He desires for them to be mature in their relationship with Christ which results in a unity of love in their community. This in turn helps them to further understand Christ in their midst. Love is a central aspect of who God is and is described here as a primary result of faith in Christ. In our world, waiting often turns people against each other. During advent, we learn to wait for God in love. We wait for God's love to be fully revealed, and as we wait we are able to love our fellow waiters.
