Grit those teeth

“The gospel is the generator to patience. Without its redemptive influence, our efforts at patience can amount to little more than gritting our teeth. We grin and bear it. Without the gospel, our effort will take on more of a negative feel than positive. That’s what makes patience more than a social grace. It is a trait cultivated more by sanctification than socialization. It flows from a Christ-centered hope. It follows a Christ-centered model.”— Vine Ripened Life
