Your labor in the Lord is not in vain

We spend our whole lives working hard, either as employees or as entrepreneurs, but we work with a purpose, we do not do it simply for doing it, because, we always expect to see a reward for what we do. In the same way it happens in Christianity, at the end of our career we expect to see a reward in our lives, a promise fulfilled and we should not be discouraged, because the one who promised is faithful to fulfill.

The apostle Paul wrote:

57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 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.

1 Corinthians 15:57-58

This entire chapter is dedicated to talk about the resurrection of the dead, and that is because we have that promise from our Lord Jesus Christ, that just as He was resurrected, we will also be resurrected and live for an eternity praising the name of God .

Our spirits should never fall, we should never lose faith or hope in what we do for the Lord, because, although in this dark world we have so many trials and obstacles, they are simply part of making us mature in the Lord.

Paul makes it clear in verse 57 that God has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. That victory has taken place more than two thousand years ago on the cross of Calvary and today we have great joy in our beloved Lord. Is not that reason to feel that our effort is worth it?

Paul ends this chapter by exhorting the Corinthians to be steadfast, constant and always growing in the Lord and in the same way we should also abide in our beloved Jesus and wait on His promises, always with an eye on the target that is Jesus Christ , knowing that our labor is not in vain.

    Your labor in the Lord is not in vain
    =======================
    “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.”
    1 Corinthians 1558

    Our hope is in the labor of the Lord Jesus Christ which is to our favor. He did works to give us life.

    We must be steadfast in faith waiting for the coming of the Lord.
    We are here in this world for a very short time, knowing that our stay here do will not be for ever. We are expecting new heavens and earth where shall be justice.

    We cannot please two masters here, nor try to earn the world and its riches and remain in the Lord also, because our natural condition prefers to follow fleshly things, and we need the power of God to stand firm in the faith and hope for another life.

    On the other hand we can’t forget that we were born in this world naked, and naked we shall leave it.

    So, our hope must be in the fact that we will appear in Heaven where Christ is, and on the day of His coming.

    “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.” Titus 213
