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.
In this refreshingly practically book, Andy Stanley and Ed Youngtwo of America's most innovative and effective church leadersdeliver twenty-four creative ministry tools that you can adapt and use to help your own church be all God intends it to be.
The inspirational stories on North Point Community Church in Atlanta and the Fellowship Church in Dallas are stories of small church plants that have grown into churches with weekend attendance of nine and fifteen thousand. But the true success of these dynamic churches is not revealed in their big numbers but in the lives that have been forever changed by the life-giving message of Jesus.
What you learn in the pages of this book will enable you to change the lives of those you serve -- "forever."
