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.
God intends for you to be happy and fulfilled--that's the encouraging message of the nineteenth-century classic "The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life." "Settle down on this one thing," writes Hannah Whitall Smith, "that Jesus came to save you now, in this life, from the power and dominion of sin, and to make you more than conquerors through His power." The exciting message of freedom--from the bondage of sin, to the life of Christ--is what has made "The Christian's Secret "a favorite for more than a century. Smith's masterwork is personal, practical, and powerful, and overflowing with substance for thought.
