Abounding in Christ October 23 of Abounding in Christ

Patience is born of hope

Refuse to become discouraged and keep on walking through life in the bright sunshine of hope.

Keep on walking on the sunny side of the street.

Without hope we cannot long endure the inevitable trial of our faith.

Faith without hope is like unto a plant with little or no root; at the very onset of a drought the plant will perish.

Jesus said, But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while; when tribulation ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

To endure the trials of life we must have patience; but patience is born of hope.

Without hope we cannot have patience.

Without patience we would quickly be overwhelmed.
