328- Noah Comforts me

 

A Sunday-School teacher met a fellow servant. That friend was extremely depressed.

Why are you looking so down?

Ive been witnessing for a while with no response. I feel like Im wasting my time. I often wonder of I cause this by my sins or if Im just an awful preacher.

Personally, Ive been so joyful.

Why?

I was meditating on Noah.

How was that?

He spent 120 years witnessing and calling people to repentance while building the arch. Nobody responded except his family. Noah did not get depressed. Now, after his departure many people repented and returned to the Lord. He witnessed but the fruits came after he had gone. This comforts my soul.

From this moment, that servant served with joy and the depression left him and he won many to Christ through his joy.

Lord, give me confidence in You.

 Through You I serve and witness to Your joyful Gospel,

 And I rejoice with Your work in me.
