Galatians 5: 22-23 (NRSV) By contrast, the fruit

Galatians 5: 22-23 (NRSV) By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. Galatians 5:22 (NRSV) But the fruit of the Spirit is PATIENCE.

Prayer I. What Is Patience? True patience is waiting without worrying. C. Swindoll, Growing Strong, p. 124. "Patience is the powerful attribute that

enables a man or woman to remain steadfast under strain - and continue pressing on." "Patience is a calm endurance based on the certain knowledge that God is in control." Bill Gothard First word is Anecho: (From 2 Greek words, "UP" & "HOLD" )

Ephesians 4:1-2 (NIV) As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. The idea is to sustain, or patiently bear with something or someone.

Hupomone: (From 2 Greek words, "UNDER" & "ABIDE.") James 1:3-4 (KJV) 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. The idea is that its the patience that bears up under a

load and provides steadiness in the midst of lifes battles. Its the patience that allows a person to endure. Makrothumia: (makros= SLOW, thumos= ANGER) Galatians 5:22 (NRSV) But the fruit of the Spirit is PATIENCE.

It means, slow to get mad. In other words its the opposite of a short temper. II. IT IS DIFFICULT TO DEVELOP PATIENCE a) Developing patience is difficult because it goes against human nature.

b) Its difficult because there are weeds of pride, selfishness and anger that can choke out the fruit of patience. c) Thirdly, patience is difficult to develop because its contrary to our culture. Proverbs 14:29 (NIV)

Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quicktempered displays folly. Proverbs 15:18 (NIV) A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.

III. Where Does Patience Come From? 1. It comes from the Spirit of God, it is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. 2. The reason we can get patience from God is because God is patience.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint If you want to FLY, RUN, and WALK you must learn to wait on

God. (Wade Hughes) IV. HOW DO WE DEVELOP PATIENCE? 1) "Abide in Christ." "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man abides in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:5 God can show Himself as He really is only to men[and women] who are united together in a body, loving one another, helping one another, showing Him to one anotherconsequently the only really adequate instrument for learning about God is the whole Christian community, waiting for Him together C.S. Lewis.

There are other things that we can do. For example: We can slow down. Trust in God. Exodus 14:13 (NIV) Moses answered the people, Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will

bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. Exodus 14:14 (NIV) The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. JESUS IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF PATIENCE

2 Peter 3:9 (NIV) "The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." Exodus 14:14 (NIV)

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. The door of salvation is open because the Lord is patient. The door to Jesus is open because the Lord is patient. Right now, the opportunity for us to be saved from our sins is still available, because the Lord is patient.

Galatians 5:22 (NIV) But the fruit of the Spirit is PATIENCE... Prayer
