The Greek word for "Weary" in this verse is the same word the Greek New Testament uses for "sick" in James 5:14.
Sometimes spiritual lethargy leads to physical ailments.
The definitions for "weary" are:
- to lose enthusiasm
- to be exhausted.
- to be fatigued.
The point the writer is making is a test in weariness.
Everyone is subject to weariness:
Isaiah 40:30 (ESV) Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted;
Weariness is a sign - it may be the result of false expectations in following Christ.
We cannot afford to think:
- We won't suffer.
- We won't be rejected.
- We won't have to endure hostility.
Jesus did. Consider him.
Don't grow weary.
