Patience

August 27, 2017 Speaker: Mike Ivancic Series: Individual Sermon

Topic: Individual Sermon Passage: James 5:7–5:11

“Patience is a virtue”  Yes, it is.  This quote originating in the 14th Century comes from the poem “Piers Plowman”.  Six centuries later it continues to be attested to in movies, books and conversations.  The Apostle Paul includes it as part of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) and conventional wisdom tells us that it surely makes for a more composed and stable person. But is it more than that?  The letter of James tells us that it is much more.  In fact, he will tell us that the absence of patience has potential life and death implications.   Together we will look at a passage of Scripture that shows us not only how vital patience is but also how we can increasingly become people characterized by patience for a lifetime.
