The Ministry Demands Constancy

The Ministry Demands Constancy

Perserverance in Ministry

II Corinthians 4:1
“Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;”

Paul could not, did not, and would not quit.


Because this glorious ministry demanded someone to keep on keeping on. The greatness and glorious life of the new covenant the “this ministry” of verse one, compelled Paul to faint not.

So many are quitting and giving up. Years of fighting, years of work have taken their toll. Many quit for various reasons, but, beloved, in light of what we know the ministration of life is, we ought not to quit!

Paul put it this way: as we have received mercy, we fail not.

When is the last time God stopped giving His mercy to us? When has He ever ceased from doing that? He never has and never will stop!

His Mercy continually flows from above. As that mercy flows so ought our constancy in the ministry continue.

Regardless of the burdens and tasks we face, we ought to resolve in our heart that we will not faint. I can’t say what I will do tomorrow or the next day or the next week or year, but for today at least I will not faint! For in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
