"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

James 5: 7-20
Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.  You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
 
If patience is a virtue, it is a neglected one. With the cultural pressures to produce, perform, and consume, there is no time for being patient. Any bump in the road must be leveled, every risk must be mitigated, and every hardship must be averted or out-sourced. Can the toils and struggles of a farmer or a prophet teach us anything of value as we follow Christ through hardship and suffering? James thinks so. Join us as we complete our study on the book of James.
