Never, Never, Never ... Give Up

"It is God himself, in his mercy, who has given us this wonderful work [of telling his Good News to others] and so we never give up."1

It was during World War II when Great Britain's back was against the wall defending herself against seemingly overwhelming odds with the unrelenting onslaught of Hitler's military might, and the unyielding bombing by the German Luftwaffe.

Winston Churchill was asked to address the students at Harrow School, the school I believe that Churchill himself had attended as a student. The following is the speech that he gave that day:

"Never give inónever, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."2

When it came to never giving up Churchill certainly practiced what he preached. His determined leadership helped win the war against Germany. And when it comes to God's work, let us all be like the Apostle Paul who said about his work for God: "It is God himself, in his mercy, who has given us this wonderful work [of telling his Good News to others] and so we never give up."

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, thank You for the wonderful calling and privilege to be one of Your witnesses during my lifetime. Help me to be an effective witness and never give up praying for lost loved ones, friends, and neighbors, and never give up letting my light shine for You. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."
