Welcome back to our Fruit of Spirit Series.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
The Command of Patience:
James 5:7-8 (NIV)
7 Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. 8 You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.
Ephesians 4:2 (NIV)
2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Romans 12:12 (NIV)
12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
1 Thessalonians 5:14 (NIV)
14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
