Patience

Patience is absolutely essential to us being made like Christ.

(Luk 21:19 NKJV) By your patience possess (G2932) your souls.

The word for “souls” above is better translated as “life”. We all start off with an old life that is the life of our old man. This old man is crucified with Christ, which paves the way for Christ to dwell within us.

(Rom 6:6 NKJV) knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.

(Rom 6:7 NKJV) For he who has died has been freed from sin.
