HOW TO BE JOYFUL, PATIENT AND FAITHFUL

"Be JOYFUL in HOPE, PATIENT in AFFLICTION, FAITHFUL in PRAYER” Romans 12:12

This is one of my favorite texts in the Bible. How can we be ‘Joyful; Patient and Faithful’?

When we accept the Prince of Peace into our lives, His presence fills our hearts with JOY.   We also have the JOY of knowing that now we are His, He will direct our lives.  We have the JOY of knowing that one day all sin and suffering will be finished.   This JOY keeps us full of HOPE.

In turn, this HOPE keeps us PATIENT in affliction.

Being JOYFUL and HOPEFUL also makes us FAITHFUL in PRAYER, and in truth, remaining FAITHFUL in PRAYER, keeps us JOYFUL and HOPEFUL.
