· Sometimes we become weary because ~ because

a) No obvious results

b) Lack of success where we think our faith should be accomplishing.

c) Outside persecution.

d) Criticism

e) Tests of our faith.

f) Distractions come from both external sources, and internal sources.

I want to share practical things on …. not becoming weary

And how to be strong in the Lord.

Let's remember

23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, (for He who promised is faithful.)

2. Financial situations,

3. Any attack from the enemy.

the temptation to quit

AND

quitting its self!!!

NIV - Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.

1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (NIV)

57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

(NKJV)1 Cor 15:58

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable,

STEADFAST = to firmly fix in one place,

Or firm in what you believe. ……….Or determination.

Summed up as ~ LOYALTY

Loyalty ~ Steadfastness ~ being fixed immovably.

Q: Why do people failed to remain STEADFAST?

1 REASON IS TROUBLES

Mark 4:16-17 (NIV)

16 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy.

17 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

1. It didn’t say if……. It said when.

2. Jesus said there will be problems!

3. John 16:33 ~ In the world you shall have tribulation:

4. Psalms 34:17&19 (ESV)

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Peter tells us to stand firm too

1 Peter 5:10

10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

· Jesus said the same thing in Mark 4 ~ there will be problems!

The nature of problems….. Are one thing

1. To distract you

2. To pull your attention off the word of God

3. To pull your attention off what God has called you to do

4. To give you the chance to become weary
