Reading from the KJV : WEARY NOT.
Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
INTRODUCTION TO THE SCRIPTURE
Weary means to lose your sense of pleasure, to not feel the enjoyment you should.
Paul is talking to the church of Galatia. Paul is writing this letter from a Roman prison (circa 58 AD) Paul, being in this prison knew himself. That God’s people would suffer well doer’s burnout. It happens sometimes when a very dedicated, committed disciple of Jesus suddenly wakes up and realized he’s tired- tired of giving, tired of doing, tired of serving. He finds that the joy of service is gone.
Let us not lose heart in doing good. If you lose heart you give up, you give in; you get tired of it all and quit.
I came to encourage you this evening not to give up, don’t quit. Stir up the gift that’s in you. What gift the Holy Spirit that, God has given us. The one thing that will hold you up, keep you up and build you up
I would like to share a story of a race I once register to run along with 4 of my friends. It was a 26 mile marathon of which I was suppose to run 6 and a half miles of the way and pass the paton off to the next team member. The start of the race runners line up and position themselves to start everyone took off at the sound of the starter gun. I in my mind was prepared to run at my own pace but, in the excitement of the takeoff I ran as fast as the other runner. About the 4th mile I had begin to get tired. As I started to notice the other runners around me begin to take lead. First I notice an old man as he past me up. I thought to myself I just can’t let this old man beat me and I kept going than I notice a pregnant woman begin to past me and I said again I just can’t let this pregnant woman past me up. I reached my partner and handed off my paton to him. He never knew that, I was about to give up.
• We all have the “ I just can’t make it sometime blues”.
– You are working hard but, you don’t see an increase something is always breaking down, or coming up trying to take away the last little bit you have left, you have to give out more than you have coming in.
– You been waiting on the right man or the right women.
– You been praying for them children and they are not getting any better.
