Patient Endurance

Some of you may be wondering what happened to the fruit of peace. I have taken the liberty of switching the order of the Fruit of the Spirit so we could do peace next Sunday on Memorial Day weekend. I trust this doesn’t try your patience too much. The first fruit is love and the rest flow from it. So one of the aspects of love is patience. The first thing Paul says about love in I Corinthians 13 is love is patient. We can all testify it’s pretty hard to be loving and impatient. Patience is one of the aspects of godly or Christ-like behavior. We are all to have it and we all have a hard time maintaining it, so we need help. If you think a sermon on patience might be tough to hear, you should try preaching it.
