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.
If you enjoy a book of substance, you'll love "Strengthen My Spirit--"a collection of carefully excerpted devotionals from the writings of Charles Spurgeon. Known as the "Prince of Preachers" for his upbeat, accessible sermons, Spurgeon preached to a nineteenth-century "megachurch" of several thousand members. "Strengthen My Spirit "brings together 180 selections from Spurgeon's sermons, addressing issues like renewal, blessing, praise, patience, and more. Text is lightly updated for ease of reading. For a substantial yet never overwhelming devotional experience, turn to "Strengthen My Spirit--"and enjoy the refreshing truths of God from a giant of the Christian faith.
