I Corinthians 15:58, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”
The word “therefore” implies that the thought is being continued from something beforehand. We find the previous thought in verse 57, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” God gives us the victory. Therefore, we ought to be steadfast, unvmovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord. Steadfast means to be firm. We must be firm in what we believe. We must be unshaken by what the devil and the world throws at us.
How do we be unmovable to things that get thrown our way. The answer is in Colossians 2:7, “Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” We ought to know what we believe AND why we believe it. This will help us to be grounded in the faith.
Lastly, we must abound in God’s work. Let us put forth the majority of our efforts into things that matter in the realm of eternity. We can make an eternal difference in this world if we are steadfast, unmovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord.
