Verse of the Day 11-6-22

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:9-10

In case you have not already figured it out let me tell you again: the Christian life is a marathon. And because the Christian life is marathon we are not to grow tired or grow weary or loose heart. And the way you do that is to pace yourself and more importantly setting your eyes on the ultimate prize (Hebrews 12:1-2). But more importantly what are we to not grow tired of doing? We are to not grow tired of “doing good.” But what does Paul mean when he writes “doing good?” “Doing good” is not seeking to be justified by works, but living as God has planned for those who have received his gracious salvation through faith (Ephesians 2:8-10). Ultimately what is telling us here is very simply this: to “sow to the Spirit” over the long haul means taking the “opportunity,” which means literally Greek “opportune or appointed time,” that the Lord places before you to “work for the good of all” (Galatians 6:10 CSB). In other words, we are not just to be doing good for those who are within the family of faith, but to those who have been marginalized in society. Because if you remember that is what Jesus did and that is what we as his followers have been called to do.
