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 presents the life and work of the New Testament’s premier missionary, the apostle Paul. It surveys his “pre-Christian life,” his conversion and call, and his missionary activities, noting the pivotal events that marked his relationship with the congregations he founded and with the Jerusalem church. Vander Broek focuses on Paul’s life and labors but also provides important and relevant discussions of how the life of Paul speaks to Christian faith today.
This book will be of much interest to contemporary church groups and individuals who are interested in how the church’s most important early missionary continues to impact Christian lives.
