As I was studying Galatians 5;22, 23, I decided to see what other verses used the same words.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV)
Longsuffering: attitude of uncomplaining
However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. 1 Timothy 1:16
That: a conjunction denoting purpose, definition or result
In: in the condition (state) in which something operates from the inside (within)
Might show: to make fully evident, showing conspicuous proof which demonstrates something as undeniable;  demonstrate, prove, whether by arguments or by acts
Longsuffering: attitude of uncomplaining
Pattern: prototype, pattern placed before one to be held fast and copied, model, for imitation
From a compound of hupo and a derivative of tupos: Hupo:  "under authority" of someone working directly as a subordinate. Tupos: a model forged by repetition; based on reliable precedent for others to then follow—pattern.
Are going: of what is sure to happen: with an infinitive present
Believe: to intrust a thing to one
for: "motion into which" implying union to a particular purpose or result
Everlasting: life operates simultaneously outside of time, inside of time, and beyond time, eternal
Life: used emphatically of the absolute fullness of life

I am to be a pattern so that others can see and undeniable proof that Jesus Christ is the only why to eternal life. 

Demonstrate making fully evident longsuffering as a pattern. 

A pattern of an attitude of uncomplaining. Pattern.
