“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces [a]patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be [b]perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
As we all know that we read from the Bible, God is Love. This is one of the perfect definitions of God. God is Love means; according to the Bible it’s not the Love we see in the worldly system around us.
God’s Love is totally difference from worldly Love. The worldly loves makes us selfish, self seeking, self centered; it also demands the response from the person to whom we are try to give love.
But Godly Love is not like that the very first quality of Godly Love is that it does not require the response from other person. How can we know simply, we can see God, He Loves us frequently without any hope from us. Our action does not change the God’s Love.
The Bible says in John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
God even love entire world although we know all the people of this world do not love God.
We can know more about God’s Love from 1 Corinthian 13:4-8 (1st part of 8th verse) NIV
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails.
According to the above mentioned scriptures the Love is patient. So, God loves us. He wants us to be like Him because in this way we can walk in His faith.
Faith requires patience because without it we can not believe, trust and wait God.
By walking in Godly Love we have to be patient to see fulfilled all promises of God in our life. Even patience will change our life.
We all know, God does not lie but He able to do everything whatever He has said to us to do when we are walking according to His way.
