Day 40 (15 September 2018, Saturday)
Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
To succeed in its mission despite the mounting challenges, the Church must persevere on in doing good for the nation – to seek righteousness, justice and mercy; to bring the good news to all the people in this land. We are called to press on.
Make no mistake, this is a long-term endeavour such as in running a marathon or a long distance relay. It will need many hands to join together and it will take more than one generation to see its fruit and that is why the Church must continuously engage each generation’s young people so that hope and the mission is passed on and taken up anew.
“Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. “For in this case the saying is true, “One sow and another reaps. “I sent you to reap that for which you have not laboured; others have laboured and you have entered into their labour.” (John 4:36-38)
As we conclude another season of fast and prayer, let the words of Paul strengthen our hands and reassure our hearts to what God is doing through His people in our nation.
“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” (Romans 12:12)
