Restoration is an art. Anyone can paint over something with new fashionable paint to hide the imperfections. But it takes an artist who can chip off the old paint, sand and varnish so that the essence of the furniture is revealed once more, not as old and tired, but fresh and beautiful, as it was meant to be.

This is what it means to be a Christian. We don’t freeze our lives as we wait for Christ, as though we must hold our breath until either we die or Christ comes again. There is good to be done in this world, and God’s good gifts to enjoy. And as we enjoy our lives, Christ is still being formed within us. Sometimes we live our lives almost forgetting about Christ. Other times we can feel a quickening in our spirit, as a pregnant woman feels the fluttering of a baby’s first kicks, and we long for a glimpse of heaven.
