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.
Ted Foote and Alex Thornburg, authors of the acclaimed "Being Presbyterian in the Bible Belt," return with a book that engagingly and wittily examines Christian discipleship in the midst of the postmodern world. With chapter titles such as "Is God Eccentric or Comfortably Middle Class?" "How Much is Grace, or is it Just Cheap?" "What Would Jesus Drive?" and "Am I My Siblings' Keeper, or Are They the Weakest Links?" Foote and Thornburg once again make a fun and enlightening read out of weighty theological topics. Includes study questions, journaling opportunities, and leaders' helps.
