The final chapter of James encourages us with the admonition to “be patient.” That is, “wait.”

He refers us to several Old Testament heroes— including Job and Elijah— who were examples of actively enduring while patiently waiting.

And he offers us this hope: we actively wait together. That is, we’re not alone. We walk in community.

We offer hope.

We offer healing.

We restore and “snatch from the fire” those who might lose their way.
