Loving the Saints Part V

We strive to have relatively few events in our Church.  This is so that you can be faithful in your homes and also so that you can meet the needs of the body when they arise without feeling overworked.  At times, the work may be hard and the sacrifice deep but God is our rewarder.  We must do this work in faith trusting Him.  These things should not be seen as burdensome but rather both as a ministry to serve others and as a means by which God seeks to bless us so that we can serve others even more.  Weariness is often a state of mind, not a state of the body.  We are to endure, trusting God who brings the endurance.  Do we believe this?  Then don’t grow weary.  Keep giving and you will always have more to give. 

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 1 John 3:18-19
