Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. I Corinthians “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain .

And behind the heart is the Lord. And so pray that God would direct the heart first to the love of God and then to the steadfastness of Christ.

“For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.” Bible verses related to Colossians 2. Philippians - Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Peter was not steadfast when he went to meet Jesus on the water. Matt. 28ff. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

Galatians Verse Concepts. Ask the Lord to help you imitate Paul’s steadfastness in your journey toward righteousness and Godly kingdom building. Paul wrote, “Be steadfast knowing your labors are not in vain in the Lord.” (I Cor. ) Many things are done in vain, but not service for Jesus.

Our labor for the Lord is not in vain. Often in this life our work is in vain. The certainty of God's word is the certainty of the reward of our labors for Christ.

THE NATURE OF THE WORK. Although not included in 1 Corinthiansthe work of the Lord is that work. Question: "What does it mean to be steadfast and unmovable (immovable)?" Answer: “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain” (1 CorinthiansESV).

That brings us to a New Testament passage in 1 Corinthians that Paul wrote, “Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. “Be steadfast, immoveable,” says the apostle, “always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain.” We read these words at the service of committal as someone’s remains are lowered into the ground.

Well, was that person’s “work of the Lord” in vain finally. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. –1 Corinthians Pardon a personal word here, but I absolutely LOVE this Fighter Verse.

Who can read even the opening line without rejoicing in being called a “beloved [ ]. Verse 58 is Paul’s conclusion to this subject.
