Do Not Grow Weary

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season
we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” – Galatians 6:9

When I mediate on this verse, I think of Open Door Mission and how we make a difference in people’s lives. On Thursday, September 23rd I had the privilege to lead chapel at the Garland Thompson Men’s Center on keyboard along with my son David on the drums and my friend Albert on bass guitar. I saw the chapel and dining room completely full of souls thirsty and hungry for God’s presence. I got do see firsthand the mighty hand of God at work through out the entire chapel time. Some men were standing lifting their hands, some were sitting, some were praying and some were singing. But every one was praising the Lord.

There is a man called (Menelik Pal) who comes in drunk every single day and usually gets people worked up. He just happened to be present during the entire chapel time that day. Menelik Pal approached me after the service and said “I was blessed by the Word tonight”. About an hour later I saw Menelik, as he washed his shoes, his face looked different. It was then, I knew he had an encounter with Christ that night.

Again let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
