4 Or do you have contempt for the wealth of his kindness, forbearance, and patience, and yet do not know that God’s kindness leads you to repentance?
1 Thessalonians 1
9 For people everywhere report how you welcomed us and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God
10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus our deliverer from the coming wrath.
2 Timothy 2
24 And the Lord’s slave must not engage in heated disputes but be kind toward all, an apt teacher, patient,
25 correcting opponents with gentleness. Perhaps God will grant them repentance and then knowledge of the truth
26 and they will come to their senses and escape the devil’s trap where they are held captive to do his will.
2 Peter 3
9 The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some regard slowness, but is being patient toward you, because he does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance
