Brothers and sisters, don’t ever grow weary in doing what is right. 2 Thessalonians 3:13 TPT
Becoming weary is losing heart, slacking off, getting, feeling or showing extreme tiredness, especially as a result of excessive exertion. Our text reveals why and how never to get weary in doing what’s right.
Beloved, the ability to continue in well-doing without weakening, wearying or slacking off is a product of an individual choice of seeing what’s right as a duty. This warning wouldn’t have been necessary without the existence of a very huge challenge and high risk of giving up doing what is right in moments of challenge, great crisis and controversy, either at home or workplace. Doing what is right implies practically getting rid of everything that is not right, always acting with humility, assuming the best and not jumping into conclusions, as well as never betraying a confidence [Proverbs 25:4-9]. It spreads the Master’s message and fulfills His desire for it to be preached in every corner of the earth [2 Thessalonians 3:1]. Praying for your leaders, following their example of love, never giving up and pulling your weight are practical ways of doing right [vv. 2-3,5,7-9]. The truth remains that its only the Spirit that knows what’s right and helps a person to do it, because He’s the only One that brings into the new covenant, therefore you must always rely on Him, so as never be weary of doing right [Jeremiah 31:31-34].
Grace upon grace!
PRAYER: Thank You that my past is forgiven and forgotten, that I can know You, and that You’ve put Your Spirit into my heart. Today and always, give me wisdom and perseverance, and guide me so that I may always do the right thing that the peace and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ will be with me. Help us in our church community to get rid of the dross in our hearts, to act with humility towards one another and to always seek to do the right thing, regardless of the circumstances, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
