Notes on Patience – Persevering in Good Works

Patience is something that is tested in my life every day, as I am sure it is for most of us. I thought that perhaps it would be a good idea for me to begin a study that was a bit more in depth so that I could know how to gain a self-mastery that I do not have right now. I hope that my readers will enjoy following this series of posts on patience and that it may help someone else out there, as much as it has helped me. To see more posts, check out Notes on Patience

5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: …
10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: (Romans 2:5-7, 10)

  • To live deserving of the glory, honor, and immortality that the Lord has promised me, takes persevering patiently in good works. This makes me think of two things. First, it reminds me of a time when I went out of my comfort zone to serve someone who showed nothing less then anger towards me continually. It was a time of great difficulty for me. It seemed like no matter what I chose to do for this person, something I did would offend or annoy them. To persevere patiently in good works, means to continue to serve others, even when it is difficult. Second, it means making choices to do what is right, even in the face of great temptations and a world that is pulling in the opposite direction. I need to take each day, hour, and moment, one step at a time and patiently do what I know is right.

    About My Scripture Study Buddy

    I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love the scriptures, but I am not a scriptorian. I've been told that I'm too "deep" for some, but if you are willing, I'd love to have others join me in my quest for a greater understanding of the gospel. Please feel free to leave me comments and hopefully we can help each other to learn.
