2009 Church Mission Trip – Day 2

After the end of the second day of the University Church of Christ family mission trip, I was thinking of how tired everyone (myself included) was getting. We walked up steep hills house after house inviting those who answered their door to the Gospel Meeting and VBS.

I began to think how Galatians 6:9, which says, “ Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” This verse speaks to those who lose heart in the service of our Lord. My understanding of this passage always led me to believe that it only meant those that continuously work for the Lord can become “burned-out” in their efforts to do what is right.

In looking at it further, and based on my experiences today, I believe it could also be looked at by those who toil in the field and become physically tired. By losing the strength to go on, one can become selfish and start justifying the excuses needed to quit.

Just like in athletics, we must push ourselves to become victorious in the end. So to my fellow laborers; do not grow weary in your well doing. If we can reach one soul in our efforts, it will all be worth it in the end.
