Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 11/03/13

This week’s scripture is from 2 Thessalonians:

Old Man Praying“But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good.”   (2 Thess. 3:13)

Serving can often be tiring, for the Lord has sent us out to the lost and dying to preach the gospel and draw people to His love and grace, to shepherd His sheep and to make disciples, but people can so easily disappoint us at times. They listen but they do not hear; they say they believe but their lives don’t change; they can appear faithful, then get swept away by sin. If we take this burden upon ourselves, it can make one weary of heart and tired to the bone, but it is not our burden to bear alone, and it is not in our strength that we are to serve. The Lord calls us to be faithful in service and to share the good news, but our strength is to come from Him, for it is the Lord alone who is our strength and our salvation.

May the Lord bless you to find your strength in Him and in His goodness.
