The gold medal game was sold out at 15,003. Nearly everyone was decked out in the Canadian colours. To see us all on our feet clapping and shouting as Canada won gold instilled in me the reminder that as fantastic as it is to see Canada win, there will be an even better experience in heaven when we as Christians will be there to cheer on Jesus when we see Him.
While we were packing the lobby at the MTS Center prior to the game you could feel the anticipation in the air. The doors would open an hour before game time, but still there was a palpable feeling of what was to come.
And, to at least some degree, that’s how it feels for me to be a Christian, living here on earth, waiting in anticipation.
We have lots to look forward to.
