“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”1 Corinthians 15:57-58 ESV
Victory is the promise of God to every believer whose trust and dependency is in Jesus Christ.
Knowing that victory that awaits us, we can be steadfast, immovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord.
- Be steadfast. Remain engaged. Keep pressing on. Don’t give up.
- Be immovable. Be resolved to finish the course. Be faithful – even when opposition arises.
- Abound in the work of the Lord. Work diligently to know Jesus, and work diligently to help others to know Him.
The work of the Lord is the only work that will never be done in vain. Any other work is futile and short-lived. My works are either “laying up treasures on earth” or “laying up treasures in heaven.”
What are the things in my life that are merely earthly investments?
What am I doing to invest into the eternal kingdom of God?
Father- help me to make eternal investments today. And thank you for the promise of victory and value.
