Power to Persevere

What tends to discourage you in your Christian walk? Opposition? Friends and loved ones who are unmoved by the Gospel? Feeling all alone? The daily burdens of life? The feeling that you are not making the impact that you would like? Etc? In the past, what has God used to encourage you and keep you in the game? How do you respond to the fact that Paul was afraid and tempted to stop sharing the truth in Corinth?

What would have made sharing the Gospel in Corinth an intimidating task? When you look around at our culture, what tempts you to stay silent about the truth when you are with your friends, acquaintances, and co-workers? How did the Lord encourage Paul not to give up and to continue proclaiming the truth?

What can we do to regularly remind ourselves that God is with us and he, not we, is sovereign over the situations we face and the impact our lives make on others? If you are discouraged now and tempted to throw in the towel, spend some time honestly pouring your heart out to the Lord and asking him to refresh and encourage your soul. Remember, he is truly able to empathize with our struggles. Heb 4:15
