“For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.” -1 Timothy 4:10
People continue in faithfulness when they see the big picture and know that eternity matters. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:9
Often times you don’t see immediate results when you’re sharing the Word of God. Keep being faithful. God has a purpose. The seeds you plant may sit for years. God gives the increase in His time; we are just called to be faithful to His Word. -excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Wednesday Evening Sermon

Faithfulness in Teaching & Preaching
“Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:24
What will He do? He will sanctify us wholly. See the previous verse. He will carry on the work of purification till we are perfect in every part. He will preserve our “whole spirit, and soul, and body, blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” He will not allow us to fall from grace, nor come under the dominion of sin. What great favors are these! Well may we adore the giver of such unspeakable gifts.
Who will do this? The Lord who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light, out of death in sin into eternal life in Christ Jesus. Only He can do this: such perfection and preservation can only come from the God of all grace.
Why will He do it? Because He is “faithful”–faithful to His own promise which is pledged to save the believer; faithful to His Son, whose reward it is that His people shall he presented to Him faultless, faithful to the work which He has commenced in us by our effectual calling. It is not their own faithfulness but the Lord’s own faithfulness on which the saints rely.
Come, my soul, here is a grand feast to begin a dull month with. There may be fogs without, but there should be sunshine within.
[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]
“He put another parable before them, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.'” -Matthew 13:31-32
“A little thing is just a little thing, but faithfulness in a little thing is a great thing.” -Hudson Taylor
