TOPIC: Patience – An Essential Feature Of Love (Seeds Of Destiny 29 July 2021)
Love does not give up on God or on people easily.
SCRIPTURE: Charity suffereth long…1 Corinthians 13:4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Love does not give up on God or on people easily.
In our previous study, we saw that love is a powerful force that attracts God’s Presence to a person because God is love (1 John 4:8). Love is the nature of God, therefore, to love is to experience God.
In our study today, we shall look at a very essential feature of love – PATIENCE.
Love is patient.
1 Corinthians 13:4 says, Charity suffereth long…
This means, love is very patient.
I want you to take note of these points:
a. Love does not easily lose patience.
b. Love does not give up easily. Love does not give up on God or on people easily.
c. Love is expectant but not impatient.
Now, there is a difference between impatience and expectancy. Love is expectant but never impatient. A major expression of love is what God demonstrated in 1 Peter 3:9 which says,
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Today, many people ask, “Why has the world not come to an end?” The truth is, God is still giving people the chance to repent. This is because God, who is Love, is patient.
Beloved, concerning that child of yours who is acting waywardly, Love says, “He will change.”
Therefore, just as it is with the character of God, cultivate the virtue of patience. Let the love of God manifest in your life through patience.
Remember this: Love does not give up on God or on people easily.
- Resist the temptation to easily give up on God or on people.
- Cultivate the virtue of patience.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to live the lifestyle of love and patience, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
