(KJV.) JAMES 5:8-9
(8) Be ye also patient, establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
(9) Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
ESTABLISH YOUR HEARTS IN JESUS!
In the above text, Apostle James encourages believers to have patience with one another, and solidify their hearts, in expectation of the second coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; he also advised them not to resent one another in the faith, harbor malice, bitterness, enmity, hatred, envy, jealousy, strife spirits etc., against another; believers are to exemplify themselves in Christ, our actions and behaviors are under scrutiny at all times, what we do in this world, say to people matters to Jesus Christ and the world as a whole; therefore, let us not get carried away with the carnalities of this world, but watch our steps, walk in the spirit, be shining examples in this world of darkness; when temptations crosses our pathways, rebuke them away, when we sidetracked from the will of Jesus, let us ask for his mercies to get back on track, that we may be worthy on the day of accountability before the judgment throne: Jesus said, "But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. cf. Luke 12:48: Therefore, let us know what we are doing in the body of Christ, be truthful to one another, time is upon us, Jesus is coming back soon!
Brethren, the world is for those who can wait; therefore, for those of us who are in waiting rooms all over the world, in expectations of the goodness and mercies of Jesus Christ, today let us be encouraged to exercise patience, wait upon him, the author, and the finisher of faith; his timing is the best time, he knows our blueprints before we enter this world; our days are numbered before him, if we yield our lives completely unto him, trust him no matter what may be our predicaments, Jesus will align all things in proper alignments and make it all good again; grant our heart desires and expectations, direct our pathways in his righteousness into eternal lives. Peace be unto you! Amen and Amen!
