The patience of God
One of the greatest gifts God has given us is His gift of patience. God’s patience is exhibited in our lives everyday and it’s important that we become aware of it because one day His patience will run out. Both Peter and Paul speak about this gift of patience given to them as Jesus Christ made himself known to them. In 2 Peter 3:9, Peter says “The Lord does not delay His promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all to come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 CSB. You see, Peter knows about patience all too well as he was the one who denied Jesus three times. Yet, a short time after, it was this same Peter that Jesus used mightily to build His earthly church.
