1. Commended

 

Ecclesiastes 7:8-9 Finishing is better than starting.  Patience is better than pride.  9 Control your temper, for anger labels you a fool.

 

2. Exercised in Our Relations to God

 

Psalms 37:7 Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act.  Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.

 

3. A Fruit of Tribulation

 

Romans 5:3-4 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

 

4. In Running the Christian Race

 

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.

 

Luke 8:15 And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest.

 

5. A Great Incentive

 

Romans 8:18 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.

 

 James 5:8 You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.

 

6. Awaiting the Fulfillment of the Promises

 

 Hebrews 10:36 Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.

 

7. Our Divine Example

 

Hebrews 12:2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.  Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
