Ok, so you’ve accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. But now, you’ve come to find out that being a Christian isn’t all “fun and games.” So, now what? Well, we are to be patient. Why? Well, Jesus is coming back to rescue us. Listen to this wonderful song by Newsong called “Rescue.”
But why wait? Because we are told to wait:
Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. – James 5:7-8
Let’s all help each other. Patience is a virtue that is difficult to obtain. We must help each other, lift each other up and encourage one another. The Lord is coming back to rescue us. In the mean time, we must fulfill His commands. Our paradise in Heaven awaits us.
