Central Theme:  The church must continue to do good.

Introduction

       1.     Bob Mumford, formerly a famous preacher, once said that it always amazed him the people who were able to continue and grow in Jesus.

       2.     Usually, they weren’t the splashy people. 

       3.     He was careful of the people who always talked big. They didn’t seem to last long.

       4.     The people who grew strong in the Lord usually came and didn’t try to impress anyone or do important and big things.  They were, sometimes, shy.  Almost always they were people who didn’t impress him much

       5.     Have a member read Galatians 6:9. “Do not be weary in well-doing.”

 

       I.     I think this must be my life verse. Because people are always coming up and telling me, “Don’t get tired of doing good.”

 

              A. The point is important.

                   1.  You must learn to pace yourself

                   2.  Richard Stimson, founder of Special Gathering used to say to me all the time. “ Learn to pace yourself. Don’t try to do everything all at once.”

                   3.  People who are successful are the people who know how to pace themselves.

 

              B. Some tricks to learning how to pace yourself.

                   1.  Make yourself be patient and enjoy what you have.

                   2.  Take time off to smell the roses and enjoy God.

                   3.  Don’t be in a hurry to succeed.

                   4.  Accept your limitations.  We all have disabilities.  There are some  things that we won’t be able to do.

 

      II.     Dorcas was a woman who was always doing good.  She got sick and died and the people that she ministered to were the people who helped her.

 

Conclusion–Doing good is the most important thing we do for others.  Learn to be must be patient and gracious with each other and with yourself.
