James 5:10 The Prophets’ Suffering

James 5:10 (KJV)

Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.


The Bible points us to the prophets and lifts them as an example, not for preachers alone, but for all believers.

Our example of Christian living is not:

  • David’s influence
  • Solomon’s glory
  • Abraham’s wealth

as our example. We are told to take for our example the prophets’ suffering.


Not every Christian is called to suffer affliction but every Christian should follow the example of these sufferers.


Patience is a virtue all Christians do best to have and practice.
