Jesus doesn't get discouraged pursuing you

Church Family,

How can you leave the mark of Christ on others today? Who around you needs encouraging, a friend, a simple reminder of God's love, or to hear the gospel message for the first time?

Isaiah 42:4 He will not grow faint or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law.

Life is full of discouragements. To be honest sometimes people can be so discouraging that we start looking for discouragement. Someone's compliment gets taken the wrong way or someone meant to be encouraging but ended up being discouraging. When I read this verse and think of John 7 from yesterday's service, I can't help but praise God that Jesus did not grow faint or discouraged when mankind, including his brothers, was trying to kill Him. 

If you are discouraged can I please try to encourage you to look where there is never any discouragement. Look to Jesus. There you will find a Savior that even when you did your best to run from Him, didn't stop pursuing you. In Jesus, we find a Savior that does not grow weary of our failures, pains, and complaints. In Jesus, we find a Savior who took all our sorrows and nailed them to cross.

Be encouraged. Go and leave the mark of God's love on others today.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian Winburn
