Dunlop & Dever on Patience in Ministry

“As we preach faithfully, pray, and model godly relationships, change will often happen. But as Christ’s servants, our job is not to ‘effect change.’ It is to be faithful. We work diligently to guide our churches in the right direction. And then as much as we long for change, we can rest content with whatever pace our Lord deems best. In fact, the richest harvest from our toil may only become visible long after our time on earth is finished.”
