keep going

as found on someone's FB feed

I've been devouring Charles Swindoll's book on the apostle Paul.  The book is about Paul's life, but really it's about God- just in the framework of Paul's life.   But that's a given considering that all Saul did pre-conversion was kick against God and all he did post-conversion is work tirelessly and diligently for Him, giving all the glory back to Him. 

On this chilly Monday morning, I ran across a good reminder I thought I'd share.  Whether Paul was being wrongly worshipped or stoned by a crowd, he didn't quit and he never forgot his audience.  About this, Swindoll writes, "When you're praised and applauded, don't pay any attention.  And when you're rejected and abused, don't quit.  It wasn't human opinion that called you into the work you're doing.  So don't let human responses or criticisms get you sidetracked.  Keep going."

Whatever you've been called to do, keep going for your audience of One.
