Therefore, my dear brothers, 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 15:58)
STAND FIRM: Take a stand for what you believe in today! Let God be the rock that you stand on and on that rock stand firm. That’s right the Bible says, “stand firm.” Do not back down from the Truth that is revealed in God’s Word! Stand firmly for the things of God and let people around you know the Truth in LOVE!
NOTHING: “Let nothing move you.” The world wants to move you in all sorts of directions, but God wants to move you in only ONE direction; His direction. This part of the verse is saying don’t be moved by all the things that don’t matter. Take the time to examine the things in your life that aren’t Christ centered. Anything that is not Christ centered is not moving you in God’s direction. Do a little housekeeping in your life. Is there anything that is collecting dust in your life? Is there anything cluttering the shelves of your mind? You’ll be able to see the road ahead when you take care of the things that don’t belong in your life or your mind.
FULLY: Looking into God’s Word you will find many words that depict what God expects from His people. “ALWAYS give yourselves FULLY…” always and fully, what great words to help Christians understand that on a daily basis we are to wake up with an expectancy to put our best foot forward. Do you give your best to God every day? Did you wake up this morning with an attitude that said you would live to your fullest for God? If not, it’s time to rethink things! Reread the verse above and see how you can apply it to your own life.
Dear Father God, I pray I will be able to stand firm on the things I learn in Your Word. May I not let anything move me! I desire to only walk in Your ways. May I give myself fully to things of You on a daily basis, knowing that all work done in Your name is never in vain.
