Patience and faith cannot be separated. Hebrews 11

“We shall not reach the goal of salvation except we have patience, for the Prophet (Habakkuk 2:4) declares that the just lives by faith; but faith directs us to things afar off which we do not as yet enjoy; it then necessarily includes patience.”

John Calvin; Calvin’s Commentaries; Translated by the Rev. John Owens; Vol XXII; Baker Book House; Grand Rapids, MI 1996
