Dear brothers and sisters, a you must be patient as you wait for the Lord's return. Consider the farmers who eagerly look for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They patiently wait for the precious harvest to ripen.
You, too, must be patient. And take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.
