“And let us (Christians) not be weary (lose heart) in well doing (serving): for in due season (right time) we shall reap, if we faint not (do not quit)” (Gal. 6:9).  Weary means there are times when you become tired, disgusted, discouraged or just lose heart. Can a Christian become weary in well doing (serving)? Note: It does not say weary in the world, but weary in doing good things. Let me ask you a personal question, “Are there times when you just don’t feel like going to church, praying, witnessing, singing, and serving others. YES! There are times when we all can become weary in well doing. During this time it is important for you, your family, and ministry that you do not quit. When you faint you become useless and unprofitable. Those who faint never reap a due season of rejoicing and reaping a harvest.  Reaping is only promised to those who do not faint. Your due season could be this week or this month, but if you quit you will never reap. A proverb and a verse, “Fall down seven times, stand up eight” (Prov. 24:16). It means choosing to never give up hope, and always strive for more. That your focus is not on what is before you, but on a greater vision that is beyond. “But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before (Phil. 3:13). Fact: I have never seen a happy quitter. Quitters have regrets and remorse of what might have been.

What is a failure? A failure is not someone who fails but someone who quits. Did you ride a bicycle the first time you tried?  No. You had to get up and try again and again. Success is not what it takes to start you but what it takes to stop you. Failure is not final. Quitters never win and winners never quit.  Peter failed three times and wept, but he stood at Pentecost and 3,000 souls were saved. Peter failed again, again, and again but he did not quit. It is not what happens to you but  in you that makes the difference. What does it take to stop you! Say to it, “You will not stop me!

I asked a question, “Are there times when you are weary?” You just don’t feel like: Reading your Bible? Well, read your Bible. It will be a special time of blessings. Praying? Well,  pray and keep praying.  It will be the time the glory bells of Heaven ring. Going to church? Well, go to church. That will be the time the message was just for you. Visitation? Well, visit! You will be glad you did and so will others. Singing? Get your harp off the willow tree and as Charles Weigle would say, “let er rip.”  

So, when you are weary, just keep doing what needs to be done, even when you don’t feel like doing it. Why? You will reap if you don’t quit.  Again, “What is a failure?” A failure is not someone who fails, but someone who quits. Be as Paul and the Lord and finish well (2 Tim. 4:7; John 19:30).

Don’t stop, quit, or give up – Never!
