Galatians 6:6-10

Beloved doing good from right motive is the most difficult of all works. It is purely a spiritual work; and no man can enter upon it, and do it a-right, unless he is filled with the Holy Spirit. Enjoy with me your Spiritual Tonic on the theme: Don’t Grow Weary in Doing Good, drawn from Galatians 6:6-10.

When a Christ first enters upon the work of doing good, he thinks that all is easy; that to serve Christ through serving others is no great difficulty – to draw other minds into the State in which he is, is but simply a pleasant exercise. And sometimes God favours those, who so enter upon the work zealously and affectionately, in their first efforts, with remarkable success. But after a little while, difficulties begin to spring up, which they had never imagine; difficulties which appear to them to be insurmountable. You can see what the individual who had to instruct the human mind, has to contend with.

There are strongholds of prejudice, which guard all the avenues to that mind; and these are found often in the child, as well as in the man. There is also the prejudices and feelings against our submission to Christ and His gospel, which as we must throw down, before we can go up and inherit the Kingdom of God no doubt, the work is hard; yet we should not despair. Every good work is difficult; never was there a good work very easily done. It is always associated with great difficulty. And difficulties always rouse a generous mind.

It is natural for a solider to be among bullets and to mount up cliffs in order to plant his standard upon castles and difficult places. The sailor thinks that it is a tame voyage if he does not experience or encounter storm. It is the storm that rouses him to action; and the battle bring out the soldiers energies. Beside, difficulties are just nothing to omnipotence. It is nothing for God to change that child that you cannot affect positively and the work is well down. You are but a channel. God is the power; and that power can be disposed or communicated through you.

Our weariness often arises from a sense of our own insufficiency. As, when God called Moses to bring the Israelites out of Egypt, he said; “Oh my Lord, I am not eloquent…” Often we see our own knowledge so imperfect, our faith so weak, our love so cold, our zeal so dying, and we exclaim, “What can we do?” that’s when Satan rushes into say that a wretch like you can do nothing! You cannot expect to be blessed. We can teach others the way of heaven. We are not helpless. We are not weak. We should cling to Jesus and not be discouraged in any way.

Let us not be weary in doing good though, doing good exposes people frequently to trials. Certainly, our sinners will come in the appropriate time, because Christ’s love brings spirituality of mind and faith. It is necessary that we persevere in doing good. Jesus Christ, our master has entrusted His cause in our hands. It is a privilege that we should labour for Him.

We should not be weary in doing good because of the brevity of our time. Our time is short, and opportunities are few. If we must do good, such opportunities must be seized. Jesus says, I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day; night is coming when no man can work.” Besides, we will render account of our work. Certainly, we shall reap a harvest of blessedness and honour if we don’t grow weary of doing good. We reap a lively heart and a generous soul and an affectionate spirit.

Let us pray: Lord Jesus, how wonderful will it be to hear you say to brethren, well done, faithful servant! Enter the Kingdom prepared for you. Lord let this be! Amen.
