Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience.
I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;
I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first.
Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.
O Lord, You know; Remember me and visit me, And take vengeance for me on my persecutors. In Your enduring patience, do not take me away. Know that for Your sake I have suffered rebuke.
That the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience;
That you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
