In cross culture. People Watching. Community in the Developing World and other Places. About questions too: "Higher up and further in!" with an outreach twist? How?

We have the Fruit of the Spirit on the inside, but it’s being worked to the outside…

“We like everything instantaneous.  We have the fruit of patience inside (Joyce Meyer is speaking in the context of the Biblical teachings on the Fruit of the Holy Spirit, in our lives..) BUT IT’S BEING WORKED TO THE OUTSIDE (emphasis mine).  Sometimes God takes His time about bringing us our full deliverance.  He uses the difficult period of waiting to stretch our faith and to let patience have her perfect work (see James 1:4).  God’s timing is perfect.  He is never late.”
