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