So then, Christian brothers, because of all this, be strong. Do not allow anyone to change your mind. Always do your work well for the Lord. You know that whatever you do for Him will not be wasted. I Corinthians 15:58 NLV

DSCF0340The Lord gives each of us something to do. A specific assignment that calls on your gifts and experiences that makes you uniquely qualified to carry out the task. We may struggle with determining what that is and how to move forward with a calling to support His work. But we can have faith that if we seek Him for the answers, He is faithful to show us the way. Our passage today requires us to be steadfast or dutifully firm in the work of the Lord. If you look and listen with your heart even in the area around you, and the people that cross your path, there is plenty of opportunity for service. There are so many who are downcast in their spirit and in their soul. Be steadfast in your encouragement and in each thing that the Lord has your hands to do.  When we do His work, we can be assured that it will not be wasted and it will not be in vain.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable  always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. I Corinthians 15:58
