Listening to a great teaching series by D.A. Carson: http://theresurgence.com/a_day_with_dr_don_conference
It’s the 5 messages that he gave at Mars Hill that comprise the book, Scandalous.
In the third message, Carson teaches from John 11, the story where Christ raises Lazarus from the dead, but waits 4 days to come.
“Sometimes Jesus shows His love through delay.”
So often we want what we think we want, and we want it now. We want it in our timing. It’s so easy to forget that God knows best, and that His timing and plan is so much better than ours.
“22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control.”
