Signs of the Times

Reprinted from the London Times in the Vindicator Youngstown, Ohio

This annual expectation of Christmas is only a bringing into sharp focus of what the Christian church should always be experiencing. The church should always be an expectant church. It is an interesting fact that the Greek word used in the New Testament for "earnest expectation" is not found in pagan literature, and may well have been a Christian formation. Christians should always feel that great reserves of divine power are waiting to be released. Such watchful expectancy heightens sensitivity, vitalizes prayer, revolutionizes values, and guards against temptation. That is why Jesus told his disciples to watch as well as to pray.
