Christ – Patience of a Saint

9 02 2013

7 P of the Life of Christ - 1In the last several posts we have been talking about the 7P’s of the life of Christ. The first was plan, the second purpose, the third path, the fourth presence and today we look at the fifth, patience.

But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

Rom 8:25

Christ worked hard to be a patience man as we see in the encounter with the son his disciples could not cure in Matthew 17:17, Then Jesus answered and said “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him to me.”

As Christ waited to fulfill his purpose here on earth he had to wait until man was ready. Matthew 17:17 clearly reveals the disciples were not ready for Christ to go to the cross as they were stillBaby learning to have greater faith.

Like Christ, you and I have to wait patiently for what we know is to happen. “One day my child will walk” the mother reminds herself as she struggles not to pick up her child who is diligently attempting to crawl across the floor.  We must have patience, for in having patience we allow others to mature, coming to the place where they too can walk the path the Lord has for them.

May these words of the apostle Paul from Colossians 1:11 encourage you.

“May you be made strong with all the strength which comes from his glorious power, so that you may be able to endure everything with patience. And with joy give thanks to the Father, who has made you fit to have your share of what God has reserved for his people in the kingdom of light.”

Join me next time as we look at the sixth P, perseverance.
