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.
The Messenger of Grace Bible study series, based on Kenneth Schenck's Paul--Messenger of Grace, helps small groups and individuals go deeper in their understanding of Paul and his letters. Like the book, these studies begin with sound scholarship and focus on applying Paul's life and letters to contemporary life in a practical way.
Each six-week study focuses on one of Paul's letters from the earlier part of his ministry and includes both weekly and daily study components.
