Yield Not to Discouragements   1 comment

Gal. 6, 9

Temptations to weariness in well-doing common lot of all.  Paul seeks to guard against it.

1.  What is well-doing?  See context.  

(1)  Sowing the Spirit.

(2)  Doing what God wills and approves.

(3)  Serving the church in helping man.

(4)  What he disapproves is ill.  Keep this in mind.

2.  Temptation from two sources.  

(1)  From within.  Inward inclination to give up.  Or the devil suggests further effort is hardly worthwhile.  False humility.

(2)  From without.  Untoward circumstances.  Not appreciated.  Misunderstood and opposed by good people.  Seeming failure–be faithful.  Christ apparently a comparative failure, till time elapsed.

3.  Why yield to the temptation?

Die in a noble cause.  Better wear out than rust out.  A blessing in death is the faithful soul?

4.  The harvest is sure and will be abundant.

“Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.”  God will not forget our labor of love.

By faith anticipate the reward and patiently await the harvest.
