Many fall prey to the temptation of attending church only on those high Christian holidays such as Christmas and, of course, Easter. Sitting in the congregation only once or twice a year, a visitor might wonder just what all the hubbub is about. An hour-long meeting with a little singing and a little preaching is nice but certainly not life-changing! For most people, that’s probably right, because the life of faith brings change, not through occasionally dropping in on God but through regular commitment across weeks and weeks of seemingly little change. However, those who have lived out a consistent commitment to Jesus know that the most meaningful change comes when we wait on God through what can seem like endless weeks and months of nothing happening. When we wait, God is faithful to work in our lives.
