I'd never really considered the fact that there were people who were looking forward to the arrival of Jesus, and that we nowadays, take it for granted that he came. Headbender!!!
Yes mam. They were looking forward ON CREDIT (Faith) for the coming of Messiah the first time but they did not know His name.

We are looking backwards ON CREDIT (Faith) at the first coming of Messiah knowing that His name was Jesus and we are expecting His coming for the Second time.

Matthew 19:14 [NASB]
14
But Jesus said, “ Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”


It may be appropriate to note the difference between being childlike ( in faith, in being a student of living including living for God, in exhibiting trust in authority ) and being an infant ( childish, self-absorbed, given to tantrums ).

We should be childlike in our faith and be mature in our discipline.
