October 9th, 1963 “Learning Faith, Love and
2 Thessalonians 1:1-4
Today I am sharing with you what the Lord
has been teaching me. In the Fellowship,
we have been learning to exercise faith in God.
There is a lot of love also in our midst. From the beginning we are taught here to
learn faith and love. By God’s grace we
have been learning to exercise faith in Jesus Christ and love towards each
other. These days we have seen how all
of us exercised faith in prayer for the healing of the servant of God. We are praising God that we are able to
exercise such love as shown in Psalm 133:1. Here
God gave many promises to Moses and said
He would deliver His people out of
Especially for mothers, their complaint is, ‘We don’t have patience.’ Mothers may be praying mothers. But God’s plan is that they may learn patience also along with faith and prayer. Children on one side teach patience and co-workers on the other side. When people try out patience, by prayer we must overcome. The Lord Jesus wants us to learn patience also. The Lord has given promises concerning the much people in this city. Then He has given us the promise of the hidden riches for His work. We have to wait patiently for the fulfillment of these promises. The Lord has started giving some light about these promises.
For much people in the city God has given us a tent to pitch in various place s and preach. For many campaigns and meetings we need the fulfillment of the promise of the treasures. Children of God, by faith and patience, have seen the fulfillment of promises, before they finished their life on this earth. Some people have seen in their lives the fulfillment of all the promises they received. This is what the Lord taught me this week. A great amount of patience is needed to see the fulfillment of the promises. We are learning faith and love. Along with them, we have to learn patience. We have to show patience in our daily life. We have to live this patience. Without patience we cannot grow sufficiently in faith. The Lord gave children of God great patience. So, we have to ask the Lord for the patience which Jesus showed in reaching and saving souls.
Jesus showed faith, love and patience and fulfilled the plan of God. He wants us also to learn these things to glorify Him!!!
