Family Tree: Patience

Family Tree
Part 4

1. Jesus is patient with Peter’s FEARS.

2. Jesus is patient with Peter’s FAILURES.

3. Jesus was patient with Peter’s FAITH.
2 Peter 3:9
“The Lord is not slow in doing what he promised—the way some people understand slowness. But God is being PATIENT with you. He does not want anyone to be lost, but he wants all people to change their hearts and lives.”
How do we learn to be patient with each other?


2. Show MERCY

James 2:12-13
“Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”

Ephesians 4:32
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

Colossians 3:13
“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

3. Seek God’s HELP

Galatians 5:19-22
“The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT is LOVE, joy, peace, PATIENCE, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
