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. You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door! Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness. Look at how we honor those who have practiced endurance. You have heard of the endurance of Job. And you have seen what the Lord has accomplished, for the Lord is full of compassion and mercy. Most important, my brothers and sisters, never make a solemn pledge—neither by heaven nor earth, nor by anything else. Instead, speak with a simple “Yes” or “No,” or else you may fall under judgment. (James 5:7-12, CEB)

It is always interesting to me when we get passages from the New Testament that are talking about the coming of Jesus and how we need to be patient.

Can you imagine Peter, Paul, James, and the apostles knowing that we would make it to the year 2022? We are almost 2000 years after the death of Christ. And they were telling people to be patient and not to make pledges because it is imminent that Christ will be here again.

it is important to be patient, take that from one who usually isn’t patient, and especially now when we have instant everything and we can’t wait for that.

Learn to slow down and take deep breaths.

God’s timing is perfect and Jesus will return when the kindom is ready to be fulfilled. Until then we wait.

Loving People. Loving God.
