patience please

In your patience possess ye your souls.

Luke 21:19; KJV

But the fruit of the Spirit is…patience…

Galatians 5:22

Patience isn’t something we can come up with on our own, not the patience spoken of here. Though we truly need to at least love the idea. And we realize as well that it’s a fruit that comes from the Holy Spirit’s working in our lives. 

The patience spoken of here is almost like something we step into, and that in a sense takes possession of us. So that our lives: our thoughts, words, actions, attitudes, reactions, and everything else is well tuned by patience.

This is something in the love of the Spirit which needs to characterize our lives more and more. Yes, during difficult times, reflecting our Lord’s words above in Luke 21. All the time, returning again and again to that. In and through Jesus.

    Amen! Thank you for sharing about patience, and how it’s not just something that we can perfect on our own strength, we need Jesus to really exemplify “patience”. God bless!
