Have you been given the gift to confront opposition, rebuke and exhort with long-suffering?

Are you an instrument through which the Lord Jesus shows long-suffering to those who are to believe on Him for eternal life?

Are the Lord’s compassion, mercy, long-suffering, and truth leading you to repentance?
