Today’s post focuses on the 30 day Bible study on patience that I created for the month of September. It’s never too late to to join in on the study! You can download the calendar and information sheet below.
Each Monday on the calendar includes the study of specific people in the Bible who demonstrated patience. On Tuesdays (like today!) we will be discussing the study on the blog.
I have to admit, this has been the toughest post in the Bible study series for me to write.
How do I sum up the patience, sacrifice, and trust that Jesus displayed in his life? It’s impossible to cover the meaning and impact of Jesus’ life and death in a blog post, so I’m going to keep it simple.
If you read yesterday’s reading and any of the New Testament, you know that Jesus lived his life absolutely knowing that he was going to be crucified. He spent around 33 years being divinely patient in God’s perfect plan.
On the day he was crucified, he was patient and even loving towards the people killing him. Jesus endured unthinkable torture as he was mocked, spit on, forced to wear a crown of thorns, and spent hours nailed to a cross.
The good news in Jesus’ story is that his suffering wasn’t in vain. He died a selfless death so our sins could be forgiven and we could spend eternity with him if we obey him.
I have included a printable below that incorporates questions about Jesus’ story for personal reflection on the study.
If you’ve been following along with the study, I hope you’ve enjoyed it! If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them in the comments or send me an email at alliezottola (at) gmail (dot) com.
