Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
This book in the popular Re: Lit series explores the confessional, experiential, and missional aspects of the church. Blending timeless truths from Scripture with aspects of contemporary culture, such as multi-campus churches and the latest forms of technology, Driscoll and Breshears help churches learn to effectively reach people with the gospel. While Vintage Church is helpful for church leaders, it is also the kind of book you could hand to someone who has questions about ecclesiology but finds the very term ecclesiology intimidating. The authors put forth twelve practical questions about church doctrine and answer them in language that lay people and new believers can understand, so as to paint a clear portrait of the church that is timeless in all that it believes and timely in all that it does. Now available in paperback.
