Ephesians 4:2–Living with patience

January 30, 2014

Ephesians 4--2-3

Once again, the Amplified Bible offers a more expansive rendering of Ephesians 4:2

Living as becomes you] with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another.

The Verse of the Day for January 30, 2014 is another reminder to live in humility and meekness with patience whereby we endure or bear up under, and “put up with,” making allowances for one another because we love one another. Patience is the golden strand woven throughout the gnarled threads that comprise the tapestries of our lives. As believers we are exhorted to wait patiently for the return of Christ who is our blessed hope. We are encouraged, not only to wait for him but to wait on him, as we serve one another in love.

Here is yet another reminder from Hebrews 10:36 in the Amplified Bible to have patience:

For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.

Listen to this musical reminder to wait for the Lord:
