The Next Big Thing

"The Next Big Thing is not another Pentecost or another apostle or another political or social cause. It is Christ's return. In demanding an immediate satisfaction of our heart's longing, we replace this event with manufactured spectacles. Ironically, the most faithful Christian life is one that embraces a pilgrimage rather than a conquest. The ordinary life - sustainable discipleship and disciple-making - is the order of the day, as we live each moment in eager expectation of The Next Big Thing on God's schedule." - From "Ordinary" by Michael Horton
