Be not weary...

"For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. "
Galatians 6:8-10 (KJV)

From time to time it may be necessary to step back and consider the point of it all. It's all too easy to doubt and begin to believe we're fighting a loosing battle but we have a promise. One day the season of reaping will fall upon us.

Thanks KC. This is needed today.
I opened up your site right after taking a small hit while trying to do an act of mercy.

KC,
More needed words... Of course, here at GPC, we're dicussing the importance of whether we should put our offering on the table during the doxology or not... heavy sigh!

I know all things are important, even the details... but sometimes... it wears me out...
Blessings

Thanks kc, I have been giving to several televangelist, such as Robert Tilton, Fredrick K Price and others. They tell me to give to their ministries even if I have to borrow the money and God will give me back 30, 60, even a 100 fold. I haven't gotten anything back or "reaped" yet and was about to quit giving until you posted this.

Thanks, in fact I am going to apply for another credit card and not grow weary.

























Seriously, KC, good post and timely.
Disclaimer: The beginning of this comment is a joke and only a joke, please don't consider it any other way or else I will be "weary" :)

Preacher (Gordon) thanks for the encouragement. ;-)

Sis. Elisa I know we should expect those hits but somehow they always seem to catch us off guard. I'm thankful you caught this one in time and I hope it serves as potential for even more mercy. ;-)

Nellie I can sympathize. Gordon has a great post for Pastors at his site you might find very encouraging. I'm ashamed to have to admit this but I don't know your husbands sight but I'd like to very much. Could you give the link here please? ;-)

Pastor I can only imagine how frustrating it might be at times. Maybe you could sneak to the sidelines and let the detail members of the body handle those details witout you, eh? ;-)

Matthew thanks always so much for your encouragement. ;-)

Kris it seems your Spirit reaping is more lucrative than I had expected! (hehe) May God continue to bless you brother. ;-)

Dear Sis, you know the strength that comes from our being of the same mind. Thank you truly. ;-)

Yes, I'm trying to bow out of these issues. Let the session handle it...

I just watched Narnia (FINALLY!), and I loved it. But it got me thinking about 'fighting a losing battle'.

I likewise thought about this when considering the story of Elijah (I think). The one where he (or his servant) prayed that his eyes would be opened. He was surrounded by the enemy and God opened his eyes to see the whole host of angels around him protecting him. I need to find that reference, as I am sure I am botching the story.

But I think that many times the Christian just forgets who the King is standing behind them. They consider the battle to be dependent upon what we do entirely. They are scared because they see the force of Satan.

Tangent: why is it that many Christians feel they can just mouth Satan and act as though he hasn't any power at all. Yes, he is controlled by God. Yes, God is much much more powerful than he is. But NO!, we are not. We sometimes treat Satan and demons with such flippant respect that I think God would let him loose just to put us in our spot. I don't understand how we can stand before such a force of might and power and treat it with no respect.

It is as though we were standing before a fire, and knowing there was a fireman there to put it out, but dancing around the fire and teasing it as though it could not still hurt us.

Likewise, Satan is the fire. Yes, God is there making it impossible for Satan to steal our souls. But I still think that Satan has power and ability to hurt us a little. I think we should give him respect, not because he deserves our worship or awe, but because he is a mightier fire and power than we would ever hope to be.

I have no idea why I felt so inclined to share all that with you...but I did. Hopefully you'll like.

Thanks so much for this post...it's a great encouragement and huge reminder.

So many times we get so caught up in life and everything happening, that we lose sight of things. I needed to read this today!

God bless you ;D !

Kc -

I know I'm several days late here on this post in commenting on it, but wanted you to know - even today - that I read it last week shortly after you wrote it and have come back to read it several times more because I really needed it, myself.

I grow very weary here sometimes in dealing with so many external stresses and internal stresses. It's so good to be reminded to not grow weary in well-doing and to seek to do all we can as we have opportunity (I always like to think of it as "searching for" opportunities) to all people, beginning with others in the household of faith.

Yes, I need that reminder, sitting here at home alone most of the time. I can still - and should - continually seek opportunities to do good in whatever ways I can even here at home.

Hope your week - and Corrie's - this week is going well.
