The resurrection of Jesus gives us a victory we could have never won over death. So, we’re exhorted to stand firm in our faith because we (at least I do) often lose sight of this glorious truth when trouble comes our way. Let nothing move you.
I had once hoped to be in full-time Christian ministry/vocation because I thought that was the only way to give myself fully to the work of the LORD. Now I realize that it’s His working in me and through me that I am to give myself fully to regardless of where I “work” or live.
1 Corinthians15:57-58 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
