Each of us lives in this meantime between what is now and what will be then; but that does not mean we have to be idle while we await the glory of God’s promised Kingdom. God’s plan, God’s will, God’s purpose for us is not aimlessness, confusion, inactivity, or despair. There is a secret to successful living when we are caught between parentheses, in no man’s land, in a spiritual demilitarized zone! Paul mentions it in our reading for today. It is buried in the early verses of the passage; it is easy to miss, but it is there.
- 2 Corinthians 5:6-10
