In this episode:
Its all about Endurance!
Lets unpack great insight that Paul gave Timothy regarding our own actions. As men this word means can mean something different to each of us. However, God’s Word gives great insight to what endurance truly is and how it can manifest in our lives.
So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. Click To TweetGalatians 6:9
So to scripture of the week that I want to focus on for the spiritual kickoff is in the book of Galatians chapter six versus. And it says this let’s not become discouraged and doing good for in due time we will reap if we do not become weary, love that verse. Okay. Now I wanted to start also with the spiritual kickoffs or exactly where is Galatians.
Now I know that it may be fundamental for some of you guys, but look, we’re trying to help every man grow in his Christian walk. The first all is in the new Testament. Okay. So go pass the gospels. Matthew mark, Luke. You’ll pass acts Romans, then you have Bertha and second Corinthians and then you get to Galatians.
Okay. And many people believe that this was Paul’s first letter, letter. However, like everything else, there’s a debate, but either way, it’s one of the earlier pestles okay. That that’s in, it’s in the Bible and Galatians is a great, great book that we can really learn a lot from. So again, we’re going to talk about endurance this week and I want it.
Just give you all a definition of endurance. I did the old G to D G to G go to Google and we got a definition of endurance. Let’s see what Google has got to say. It says it’s the ability to withstand hardship or adversity, especially, and the ability to, to, to sustain a prolonged, stressful effort or activity, a marathon runners, endurance the act or instance of enduring or suffering and Durance of many hardships.
So really. Those are those words aren’t very encouraging, right? I mean, it really sounds tough. We’re talking about adversity and stressful, you know, marathons and, and, and suffering hardships. All those words were right, right there out of Google. Okay. But we’re not going to think about it that way. We’ll think about ignorance, the way that God has called us to right out of Galatians.
Now let’s break down this scripture. Okay. What it says, let us not be discouraged. So what’s the, you know, if we’re not going to be discouraged, we need to. And courage. So we need to hold our heads high guys. Cause we’re, you know, if we’re holding our heads high and we’re doing good work for the Lord, that should be encouraging enough.
You don’t have, Paul is reminding us doing, you know, doing good as expected, but it’s also expected to be hard work, you know, that’s, that is the hard part of it. You know, when you, when you go out there, maybe your doors, uh, submission work, or you just do it, you’re serving at your. And if anybody’s ever served in children’s departments and nurseries and things like that, that will tell you that you’re on the front lines, in a mission field there.
Right. But seriously, you know, it’s hard work. It’s not easy, but that’s okay because of blessing is not always, we can’t see that right now, but it’s going to come, you know, because we are called to love others, which is the two commandments love, God love others. Right. So we need to be encouraged with that.
Okay. Now think about the second part is for. we will reap. So to what came to my mind when I was, while I was reading, this is patience. You know, the word that I struggled with the most, you know, that, that, that patience is tough. I mean, the fruit of the spirit right there is, it said there love joy, peace, patience.
It’s there. And we have to remember one thing, it’s all about God’s timing. And this is the hardest part, you know, and, and again, I saw it was that Sukkot patients. I have definitely, uh, uh, not qualified to talk to you guys about patients, but to some degree, but other than I was tell you this, if you pray for patients, be prepared, God’s gonna give you an opportunity to be patient.
Okay. Cause that’s what you’re going to get. You’re going to get that opportunity to be, to be patient and I’m right there in the line within us. Right. Uh, trying to understand this ministry, this business, how work thanks for trying to grow, you know, and I constantly wanted to go faster. I want to do more.
I want to build more. I want to have more courses. I want to have more content out there to serve you. Yeah, I was with, but I need to be patient that’s all God’s Tommy. So remember that rest of that take refuge at that patient is such a big deal. And Paul is telling us right here in due time, we will reap the distrust that.
At variant talks about strength. Okay. As we’re talking about, if we do not become worry strength, we have to have that health will get. And again, back to the health bucket that we, that we talked about, all the town a lot with Dennis victory is promised to us, but there, this is a key part of stricture of the screen of the scripture.
If we do not become weary, that we noticed that if, and there, if we do not become weary. So how do you Nabokov. You got it. There said Durance, that’s what it’s all about. And sometimes we need our brothers out there to help us endure, but we are never alone, no matter what, because of the holy spirit and ally with Dennis, that lion has inside that lion of Judah that we are trying to just bring out and live everyday boldly with he’s with you always, always.
And remember this greatness is not found in the easy, but the. So you need a lean in it. Dear beat a leader you’re predestined to be, this is what we talk about all the time. So this scripture, this is a lion scripture period. So Galatians six, nine, let’s not become discouraged and doing good for in due time.
We will reap if we do not become weary guys at all I know is tough. The world is beating us. You feel worry.
