A great gift from God, but also a lesson on God’s character. Patience is one of the fruits of the spirit as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23. In the King James Version of the Bible it is written as “longsuffering”. The fruits of spirit are an example of how God wants us to live amongst others, and with these fruits as an example, we can show our Godlike character.
But patience is also a lesson on God’s character, because He is patient in waiting for us to be ready for His return. Since Jesus ascended to Heaven in approximately 33AD, we’ve been waiting for His return. But God knows that we are not ready yet. When Jesus returns, He wants to take as many of us with Him to heaven. Are you ready yet, don’t miss out, build your Godlike character.
Patience is one of God’s gifts, and so is Free Will which we’ll learn about tomorrow.
