Putting to heart these words….

Posted: November 14, 2008 in Uncategorized

I am going to start putting to heart these words taken from Eugene’s Peterson’s “The Message” bible.

My main emphasis in this passage is to become passionately patient.  I will be working on that more and more each day.  God knows I struggle with it.

2 PETER 1:5 (The Message)

So don’t lose a minute in building on what you’ve been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others. With these qualities active and growing in your lives, no grass will grow under your feet, no day will pass without its reward as you mature in your experience of our Master Jesus. Without these qualities you can’t see what’s right before you, oblivious that your old sinful life has been wiped off the books
