Patience

7 Jun

Before My laptop mysteriously disappeared (God has made it up to me my brethren) I had done a commentary/retranslation of the book of James verses by verse from the Greek.
Now that I have had to start over again I see even more truth that what was there before.

Here is one such nugget of truth – the word is “patience”.

“My brethren, count it all Joy when you fall into diverse temptations… knowing this that the testing of your faith produces patience.” (James 1:2)

Why this word Patience? “Because we all know that we must endure many things and various hardships if we wish to see the kingdom of God.”

See Matthew 7:14 “But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (NIV)
