Waiting Patiently

Two of the Greatest Qualities in Life--Patience and Wisdom!

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. Don’t grumble against each other, brothers,
or you will be judged. 
The Judge is standing at the door!

Today is a day of consolation.  There is an end to all of the sin that we encounter in this life, both those sins that we so ungodly commit and those which are committed against us.  Praise God, there is an end!  And it is coming.  Only we must be patient.  We must stand firm.

And in the meantime, if we do not want to be judged by the Judge of the Universe, we must not stand as our brother's judge.   The Judge is already at the door waiting to judge what He sees day by day.  We will be avenged by the God of Heaven.  No need to grumble or take vengeance ourselves.  Hallelujah and Praise the Lord!  He will do a much better job!

I can't predict how long the Lord will tarry; neither could the apostle James.  Therefore, we must be patient.  But that doesn't keep us from looking forward to His return with great expectation.

Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly!
