Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
What we need now, more than ever, in the Body of Christ is stability. In the midst of troubling and perilous times we need to remain stable. Our stability is a witness in and of itself to those around us. Stability is not a one-time decision; it is a day-to-day decision to live for the Lord Jesus Christ. Day-by-day continuing in the things we have learned and know to do. It is not legalism that teaches us to live godly and deny ungodliness – it is grace Titus 2:11,12. God’s desire is that His sanctifying power keeps us keeping on the path of godliness and for it to be a stabilizing force in our life. There are times we feel saved; there are times we do not; there are times we feel like going to church; there are times we do not; there are times we feel like doing right; there are times we do not. We are not exhorted to go by how we feel but we are instructed to continue in well doing because it is good and in time, we will reap.
The exhortation implies doing well, doing the right thing, and living right can be wearying. The idea that if you are living by grace, doing everything right, then you will live an effortless life is a false conclusion. Why would we have to be exhorted to not grow weary in well doing if the Christian life was effortless? True, we cannot add our effort to the finished work of Christ but it does take effort on our part responding to all He has done for us as we go against the ungodly current of this world. Don’t give up; stay stable, for it pays to obey God.
