Spiritual Gifts Part 250: Run in such a way that you may WIN!

makrothumia is patience exhibited under ill treatment by a person, while hupomone is patience shown under trials, difficulties and hardships.

Real patience can only come as a grace gift from God.

Col 1:11 strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness [hupomone] and patience [makrothumia]

God is at work producing mature sons who can step in and take on the amazing calling and destiny He has waiting for those who love Him.

Not all believers love the Lord.

1Co 16:22
If anyone does not love the Lord, he is to be accursed. Maranatha.

These differences are spoken of in the Bible in terms of rank, rulership, reward, recognition, privilege, and intimacy.

1. Rank:
twelve thrones, first and last.
Mat 19:27-30

2. Rulership:
10 cities, 5 cities, no cities; sitting down on Christ’s throne to rule with Him.
Luk 19:11-27; Rev 2:25-29; Rev 3:21
