MESSAGE:

Long suffering comes from a place of deep strength; emotional, spiritual, intellectual and even physical strength. It is the courage to bear harsh realities of life. It means self-restraint in the face of anger, hunger, frustration or any other bad situation. Long suffering is the ability to patiently forebear and wait for the promises to God to come to pass even when all the signs say otherwise.

Long suffering also comes with the ability to quickly let go, forgive, and move on no matter how much we are being treated unfairly. In this present world, long suffering is very far-fetched, but it is an attribute that every Christian must possess to be able to run the race successfully to the end. The good news is that the Holy Spirit is ever present to help us, and absolute obedience to His leading births long suffering in us. Every time you choose to go with the prompting of the Holy Spirit rather than the promptings of your flesh, you build up your long suffering.

Prayer Point: Sweet Holy Spirit, please fill my heart with patience and strength.

Hymn 5:

Onward, Christian soldiers,
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!
Christ, the Royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See His banners go!

Chorus
Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!

At the Sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
At the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise!

Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
All one body we
One in hope and doctrine,
One in charity.

Onward, then, ye people,
Join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song;
Glory, praise and honour,
Unto Christ the King;
This, through countless ages
Men and angels sing.
