One of the big problems that we have today is that too often we major in minors and minor in majors.
I Corinthians 15:58, “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
At the close of his teaching on the subject of the resurrection, Paul gave a word of encouragement to those who were involved in the Lord's Work. Sometimes we become apathetic about serving the Lord because we don't see any results. Because of the victory that Christ has won through His resurrection, we should not let discouragement over an apparent lack of results keep us from doing the work of the Lord enthusiastically.
One of the big problems that we have today is that too often we major in minors and minor in majors. You remember that Jesus engaged in a healing ministry when He was here upon the earth. On three different occasions He healed men who were blind. One man was healed by the touch of Jesus. Another was healed with spittle in the eye. A third man was healed with mud in the eye. If these men had lived in our day they would have formed three new denominations - the touchites, the spitites, and the mudites. What was wrong? They were majoring on methods instead of Jesus. Paul encouraged the Galatian believers to faithfully do God’s work. Galatians 6:9, Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
