So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.1 Corinthians 15:58
Be Strong and Immovable
So while you are on this earth and living for God, be strong and immovable as this verse says. Think of something that is strong and immovable. The strongest building can not withstand a hurricane with its fierce winds and waves. Water is too strong. But there are things in God’s natural creation like rocks and mountains that are immovable. The mountains do not give way to the seas. They will not be moved or shaken. Your foundation in Christ should be so strong that nothing can move it or shake it. If your foundation is found in Him, then when the storms come, He will not be overwhelmed because God is not overwhelmed.
The second part of this verse tells us to always work enthusiastically as if working for the Lord, not for men. We know that everything we do in the name of the Lord is useful, not useless. If we place our trust in God and live according to His will, then when we serve Him, even if we do not see it come to fruition, He will still do a work. Sometimes we do not get to see the fruits of our labor. But God always does. He always comes through. Someday we will see the rewards of that work.
A Prayer to Remember
God, may my foundation be found in you. I know that you are the only one who can withstand the storms of life. May I work enthusiastically for you. Amen.
