“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 NIV

The word weary can loosely mean to be tired as a result of lack of sleep or consistent exertion of self into one thing that doesn’t seem like it is yielding expected fruit. When Paul writes this book, he is speaking to the church in Galatia which was still a bit confused on balancing their new found faith in the Messiah and the grace which came by his sacrifice versus the old way of the law and efforts in the flesh they were used to.

He rebukes them in love, urging them to ensure they don’t begin to import the old behaviors that were the very reason people stayed bound to sin into the new found life in Christ. He reminds them that failure to fulfill one commandment equates failure to fulfill all and that they don’t want to start performing to earn grace because it was freely given already.

Child of God, this portion if scripture and the message of the book of Galatians still applies to us today in this simple way: embrace the good news of Jesus Christ which is justification through faith alone and receive the grace ordained to empower to live like Jesus the author and finisher of this good work.

If you have confessed Christ as Lord and savior of your life, there is nothing more or less you need to earn his love or grace. It is now for you to embrace it and yield to the spirit as he teaches and establishes you in the ways of this new life which you did not know before.

Furthermore, it is not expected of you to perform in the wisdom of men or the flesh because you have not been on this path before and need the help assigned on this side of glory. See to it therefore that you receive from the Lord. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father I thank you for this truth. I am ever yielded  to your spirit that teaches me into all truth. I have surrendered my heart that you may soften it towards your way for in it is life and fullness of joy. As the vinedresser prunes his branches, so do I desire your gentle arm to prune what is wanting in me that I may serve you with clean hands and a pure heart. I pray and believe it is so, in Jesus name. Amen!
