Patience, Comfort Through Scriptures



For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

                                                                                                                                                                Romans 15:4-5 (NKJV)


These are the words of Paul penned to the believers at Rome.


He tells them that the thoughts written by earlier writers have been saved and handed down so that we may learn from them. We can learn patience, wisdom, hope, and comfort through reading the Psalms and the Proverbs. By reading Paul’s letters, we can learn how to respond to the temptations of society. By reading the Gospels, we learn of Jesus’ ministry and how He chose to take our sins onto Himself in order that we will be able to enter heaven to be with Him.


Paul also mentions that we become ‘like-minded’ with one another as we study God’s word.


I am presently reading a book to review that deals with fining peace in our lives. The author points out that peace can be achieved through obedience. In the past few years, I have had both these words as my ‘word for the year’. I am enjoying this book as I continue to recover from COVID.

  1. I pray you are feeling much better day by day. I am glad you are resting and reading as you recover, and that God is blessing you with good "food" for your spiritual growth in the process. Thank you for sharing these thoughts with us. Yes, as we study God's Word we grow closer to Him as well as closer to The Body of Christ, His church. We become one in Christ. It is a beautiful picture. Please take care and continue to rest and get well. (((hugs)))


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.

Trusting Him  Many sorrows shall be to the wicked, But he, who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him. ...
