Should The Work Cease?

Nehemiah 6:1-19

Anything that we do for God is "a great work", and I believe God intends for us to do it well and to stay with it until it is completed. "The measure of a man's character is what it takes to stop him." Many people start out doing a work for God, but they do not finish. This city is full of people who were once involved in the work of God; some of them are merely pew sitters now, and some of them are not even attending church at all.

What stopped them? Were they unsaved? I am not sure that everyone who quits serving God in an active manner is someone who has never been born again, although this is, no doubt, sometimes the case.

There are some things that will come up in our lives to hinder us from doing the work God has for us to do. These are also things that will hinder the work our church is doing.

I. The Devil Can Cause The Work To Cease

II. Discouragement Can Cause The Work To Cease

III. Disappointment Can Cause The Work To Cease

IV. Distraction Can Cause The Work To Cease

Why should the work cease? It shouldn't. Be encouraged tonight in the promises of God's Word.

(Gal 6:9) "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
