The great Apostle Peter did not always have patience. He was impetuous. He denied the Lord a few hours after he said he would never forsake him. But he developed patient determination. He became steady as a rock, fulfilling the nickname (Cephas = rock) that Jesus gave him. We can become rock-solid in our faith and practice. This study can help you in that important work.
