Patience, Kindness, Goodness

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Isn’t God good? All the time! And all the time, God is good. We also know that He’s kind…and He’s patient. Just ask Bill! Bill had been praying for decades for his sister-in-law to come to saving faith in Jesus. He patiently prayed for her heart to be softened, and she finally accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Talk about a celebration! You see, the Fruit of the Spirit includes patience, kindness, and goodness. And this story shows us God’s kindness and goodness, and His patient pursuit of our hearts. The Lord gave Bill patience to pray for his sister-in-law and the words to speak the Gospel to her. Romans 2:4 says it’s the kindness of the Lord that brings us to repentance. How can you be an example of patience, kindness, and goodness? Well, look to the Lord and His Word, and He will produce the Fruit of His Spirit in you.
