“The Fruit of Patience” (James 5:7-11; Galatians 5:22) Sunday May 28, 2017
Call to Worship
L: God has planted within and among us the seed of the gospel.
P: And through baptism and the Holy Spirit irrigated it with living waters.
L: Parents and family, teachers and friends, pastors, counselors, and churches have each cultivated us.
P: Yet it was always God who gave the growth!
U: May the fruit of patience ripen among us and be shared so others taste and see that the Lord is good!
(James 5:7-11; Galatians 5:22)
Our first reading comes from the letter of James.
7Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.
8You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.
9Beloved, do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors!
10As an example of suffering and patience, beloved, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.
11Indeed we call blessed those who showed endurance. You have heard of the endurance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.
Our second reading comes from the letter to the Galatians.
22The fruit of the Spirit is patience.
Here ends our readings. May God bless our understanding.
