Late Lunch Bite

“Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? …
(Hebrews 12:3–5a)

To grow weary or fainthearted. Have you felt that lately? Seems that that everything these days just saps us from the energy we need. Chaos and anarchy in the world and closer still in our own personal lives is meant to rob us of the peace that is so needed for spiritual growth. The weariness deprives us of hope.

Look at how this passage tells us to handle the weariness of life. It points to not to what we should do but what God has done.

  • Endured sinners, even our own sin.
  • Shed blood, He gave us life in His death.
  • All to make us part of His family.

God certainly seems to want us more than we want Him. The greatest battles have already been won, Jesus said, “It is finished.” So this seems to be telling us that the weariness we are experiencing is because we fighting a battle that has already been won.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”” (Matthew 11:28–30)
