day 28 – patient love
Have you ever wondered why God is taking so long coming back a second time?
He loves us, that’s why. He loves us with a very patient love.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
Personally, I think God would like to come back and set things straight as soon as possible, but He has a patient love for each and every one of us. He doesn’t want anyone to perish, but all of us to repent and live eternally with Him.
We see His patient love in so many other ways too. How many times have we had to learn the same lesson over and over? And yet, like a very patient father, He teaches us again. I am certainly grateful for this very patient love!
