Christians Sometimes Become Weary
Gal 6:9 Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.
Greetings. This is Pastor Bob. Brother Pastor Abaldo has been unable to post on this website for the past couple of days due to an unknown reason where his computer has not been able to connect to this website in order to post. He has been working diligently for the past 48 hours to try to correct this situation. We seek your prayers for this ministry as we continue to look for His direction to correct whatever has gone wrong so that our dear brother in Christ, Danny Abaldo may continue to submit new postings. Until we get this problem resolved we will continue to post new material as quickly as we can using alternate means.
Psa 37:7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
This Psalm instructs us to rest patiently and not to fret. I can remember so many years ago as a young man, then a young and immature Christian who was all too quick to lose patience and fretting while trying to repair my 1981 Ford Escort. What a nightmare that car was to work on! Often it seems, I felt like giving up on that abominable machine-even though it was only a couple years old. There were life lessons that the Lord was teaching me about patience and temperance. Today, some 33 years later the challenges in life seem even more complex. Rapidly changing technologies, persons who carry out wicked schemes, and persons who prosper at the expense of others are just the beginnings of troubles for us in this day.
From Albert Barnes; Notes on the Bible:
Christians sometimes become weary. There is so much opposition to the best plans for doing good; there is so much to be done; there are so many calls on their time and their charities; and there is often so much ingratitude among those whom they endeavor to benefit, that they become disheartened. Such Paul addresses, and exhorts them not to give over, but to persevere.
