WAITING FOR GODOT …

Basic Scripture: Isaiah 12: 1-6; Philippians 3: 8-14

There is a drama write-up titled, “Waiting for Godot” written by Samuel Becket. In the drama, the Irish author portrayed a picture of a GLOOMY ATMOSPHERE in which the actors had an idea of

what had to be done, but lacked the zeal to implement it because there was no sense of joy.
This play is described as a tragicomedy in which two characters, Vlandimir and Estragon, wait for the arrival of someone named Godot, WHO NEVER ARRIVES and while waiting, they encounter three other characters. Waiting for Godot is Becket’s translation of his own original French play, “En attendant Godot,” and is subtitled (in English only) “a tragicomedy in two acts.” The English Language version was premiered in London in 1955.

In a poll conducted be the British Royal National Theatre in 1990, it was voted the “most significant English language play of the 20th century.” Yet, it is a TRAGICOMEDY! Like this drama piece, millions similarly and most times, seem to know what they want from life and ministry, but they just cannot key in or arrive there, because some things are missing: Zeal and Joy. Zeal is like, “Andrews Liver Salt” in water. It is infectious and spreads.

Whatever you do without joy and zeal in your life is difficult to finish. Galatians 4:18 is great: “But it kids good to be zealously affected in a good thing.” Without zeal, nothing good can survive. If the devil can succeed in killing your joy, he has killed your destiny. Some are not able to work for God again in their churches because of problems. Refuse to shake! Only those who refuse to be shaken get things shaken. When you stop worrying, you start winning (Heb 12:1). Your life is a battle with a sure victory.

Be a man – (1 Kings 2:2)! Be tough! No gentle ever returns to from the war front! Mr. GODOT never arrived in this drama! The actors waited in vain! But for you and your family, something great is about to happen! You will not wait in vain! Your last bus-stop will not be a comedy mixed with tragedy – a tragicomedy! Refuse to cry or crawl! Disappoint your disappointments! The cheapest way up to forget the past, make the best of today and be excited about tomorrow. Anytime you hide in worry, your future becomes uncertain. You and all yours will make it in Jesus name!
