TITLE: "UNMOVABLE FOR THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST”
SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 15:58, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (KJV)
According to the 2018 Guinness World Records and the Bible Society; the Holy Bible is the bestselling Book of all times. Between 1815 and 1975, 2.5 billion copies have been in print. But, it is said that the estimation could be as much as five billion. Christians around the world are consistently persecuted for its written contents. Why is this so? Not many people want to face the fact about the deadly effects of sin in their lives. To tell a person, he or she “must be born again to see the Kingdom of God”; sounds farfetched to them.
However, the Holy Bible is the Living Breathing Word of God. It is the written Holy Book of sixty-six love letters by The Holy Spirit from the heart of God to humanity. When given the chance, the Word of God forever touches and change lives through Jesus Christ.
On this note, God does not stop being God or go away because sinful humanity wants Him to. Why? He is the Creator of all things. Despite how sinful man tries to say that we evolved through evolution; rather than from Holy God. Everything created in this universe was by Intelligent Design. Humanity has a beginning; God does not! In spite of what humanity does, the Lord continues to be the Loving, Holy, Righteous Judge, and Father that He is. The Lord has given us glimpses of Him through His Holy Word and by the physical existence of His church. Jesus started the church; not man. Therefore, the church belongs to Jesus Christ. We as the people of Christ are caretakers of His Holy institution.
As a result, in 1 Corinthians 15:58, the Lord gives us an exhortation through the writing of Apostle Paul stating, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (KJV) According to this Scripture, there are three things the Lord wants us to focus on doing for Him. (1) Be steadfast. Become established in your faith for the Gospel. Do not let your faith be shaken by the belief system of this world. (2) Unmovable. Anchor your soul in the hope of the Gospel. (3) Abounding. Be faithful to the Gospel. Flourish! Thrive! Proliferate! Run your race with vigor.
All of these attributes helps us as Christians to be effective servants for Jesus Christ. Without Him, we cannot effectively make a positive and long lasting difference for Him to this dying world. Serve the Lord with confidence and gladness of heart. Spiritual gifts are not just for use in the pulpit; gifts from the Spirit are found within the congregation too.
Your life has a special purpose for God’s Kingdom. Walk prayerfully in your divine calling!
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, help me to stay on the course that You have set for me. In Your Matchless Name…Amen!
