Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/22/11

This week’s scripture is from Galatians: 

“Let us not become weary in well doing, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”    (Gal. 6:9-10)

It is so easy to become weary. The world wears on us; work seems never ending; one task is barely done before another takes its place. Everything clamors for our attention and the grind becomes so tiresome. At times we long to let it be enough, to walk away, to answer no more calls.

But take heart, brethren; the One who called is true. He never fails; He is there to buck us up. He is our strength and our shield; armor up and take up the sword; His battle is already won. Don’t stop or turn back. Cry, “Victory!” and go into the fields where He has sent you. Speak love into them that you meet and bless all of them who believe. Speak the name of Him who sent you and declare the love of God.

May the Lord bless you with strength and empower you to speak the Word in love this very day.
