Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Romans 12:12

Joy, patience, and faithfulness are three wonderful characteristics exemplified by our Lord and Master. We can do no better than try to imitate them. Let us reflect for a moment:
• it was for the joy that was set before him that he endured the cross and despised its shame.
• he was always patient in all his dealings with everyone he encountered.
• his faithfulness – both to his Father and to his disciples – was constant, never wavering.
What wonderful attributes, what a wonderful Saviour, what a supreme example. for us to emulate!
