Patience - November 17


Thoughts on the Patient Endurance of Sorrows and Sufferings


For the Spirit Himself giveth testimony to our spirit, that we are the sons of God. And if sons, heirs also: heirs indeed of God, and joint heirs with Christ: yet so if we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified with Him. For I reckon that the sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with the glory to come, that shall be revealed in us. -Rom. viii. 16, 18.

For that which is at present momentary and light of our tribulation, worketh for us above measure exceedingly an eternal weight of glory. -2 Cor. iv. 17.
