Fruit of the Spirit - PatienceBy Sean Finnegan on 02/02/2020
2 Peter 3:9 Our God is a God of patience. He is patiently waiting for more to reach repentance before he brings about the end.
Luke 8:15; Romans 2:6-7 It’s important for us to be patient with ourselves as we seek to produce godly fruit in our lives. We can’t allow ourselves to get frustrated by slow progress. We need to endure steadfastly.
Romans 8:24-25; Hebrews 6:11-15; Psalm 37:7-9 We can get worn down by the world while waiting for the hope. Even so, we must patiently endure in faith, knowing that what God has promised will
come to pass.
2 Timothy 4:2 It’s also important for us to be patient with each other. How much patience has God showed you to get where you are today? Sometimes people have breakthroughs and make huge progress, and other times they become stagnant or backslide. God calls us to be steady-to have complete patience as we seek to help others.
James 5:10 The great Hebrew prophets have much to teach us about patience. Think of the patience of Abraham and Sarah who waited twenty-five years to have their child. What about Elijah whom the government hunted for over three years while drought dried out the land of Israel.
Galatians 5:22-23 We have such an advantage today over those who came before us. We have the full canon of Scripture, the powerful redemptive work of Christ, the aiding help of the holy spirit, and a clear vision of the hope.
