In the name of Jesus Christ

When someone visits a doctor's Office he or she waits in the waiting room, until his/her turn comes. Waiting might take an hour or more, depending how many people are in line. Everyone should exercise patience until their turn comes. Waiting with patience make us reach our goals easier.

Job was very patience with his sickness and affliction and he reached his goal in healing and recovery. The Bible tells us about someone, whose patience was so great in everything He was enduring, and He was called the God of Patience. (Now the God of Patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus. Romans 15:5)

In His service on earth, the Lord Jesus was very patience with His disciples, so that He said unto them: How long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? (Matthew 17:17), and being our ransom He had the patience to bear the pain and suffering from slashing, beating and the crucifixion. The question to be asked is how should our patience be and in which things?

The Holy Bible answers these questions and clarifies it to us:
- Our patience continues in well doing. (Romans 2:7)
- We have to be likeminded one towards another according to Christ Jesus (Romans 15:5)
- We receive the Word of God with an honest and good heart, keep it and bring forth fruit. (Luke 18;15)
- We glory in tribulations, also knowing that tribulation works patience. (Romans 5:3)
- We hope for that we see not, and then we do with patience wait for it. (Romans 8:25)
- We read the Word of God for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. (Romans 15:4)
- We approve ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities and in distress. (2. Cor 6:4)
- Being strengthened with might, according to His glorious power unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness (Col 1:11)
- Being patient when we are hated of all men for the sake of Jesus' name, till we shall be saved. (Matthew 10:22)
- In our patience we shall win the
true life of your souls. (Luke 21:19)

Our Lord Jesus exercised patience leaving us an example to follow Him, lets be His obedient disciples and be diligent to please Our Master.
God be with you.
