Don’t Give Up

One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.
Luke 18:1 (NLT)

Jesus had many spiritual lessons He wanted to impart to His disciples. Love was a major tenet of His teaching. Faith was another. In this verse we see that Jesus had yet another important lesson for the disciples to cling to. He told them to pray and never give up. It is a great combination. Some have prayed but after a while give up. Others have persevered but never took their issue to the Lord. Here Jesus is teaching us that there will be many times when we will get tested and tried. There will be times that we need to persevere. But He reminds us that we don’t persevere alone. He said that we are to, “always pray and never give up.” Paul writes it this way, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” Today, what have you been persevering about? What is heavy on your heart? Bring it to the Lord, for He said to pray and never give up!

Father, I have hung in there so long. I have waited and am so close to giving up. But You tell me not to. Instead I am to pray. So I come to You today. Hear me Lord. Give me strength. I give my burdens to You. Help me I pray. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
