So my dear brothers and sisters, stand strong. Do not let anything change you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your work in the Lord is never wasted.
I love this verse.
Through this chapter, the resurrection of Jesus is discussed – and by the love of God, shows that we can be victorious over death and live forever through Jesus Christ.
In ‘stand strong‘, we are told to stay with Christ throughout our lives, and to, with the Christian family (brothers and sisters) always follow God and stay with God.
‘Do not let anything change you’ says to me that we should always stay with God and follow God, not letting people around us change that. Do not be tempted by other things, never forget God, and always remember that God loves us and that we should always stay with God, no matter what other people say.
‘Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord’, because God deserves it. God sacrificed Jesus for us on the cross. Jesus died for our sins. This is such a great thing, and shows just how much God loves us. So always give everything to the Lord, because God deserves that. And if we love God, God shows love in return to us.
James 1:22: Do what God’s teaching says; when you only listen and do nothing, you are fooling yourselves.
It’s no good just going to church. Show how much you love God in return for everything that God does for us. ALWAYS give yourselves FULLY to the work of the Lord. Because God deserves to have our love shown, and for us to show thanks, and to love. Love is so important.
‘you know that your work in the Lord is never wasted’.
God gave Jesus’ life for us. God loves us so much, and by loving God in return, when we die, we will have eternal life with God, and will join God in heaven.
Our work in the Lord is never wasted, and you will be rewarded with eternal life with God for everything you’ve done.
I love this verse and think it so motivational/inspirational and love reading it. This post is just what I think when I read it, and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it.
Here is the verse again to read. When you’ve read it, just take a minute to think about it to yourself, and what it means to you.
So my dear brothers and sisters, stand strong. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord. Because you know that your work in the Lord is never wasted.
Peace be with you.
