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 15:58

There is a great victory to be won today. It has nothing to do with far away conflicts, or a devastating disease, or the passage of important laws; yet, this victory is related to all of these. Since, in Christ, the battle with immortality, the war with death has been won, we need to live as the victors. Our victory celebration is the dance of life that we are called by Christ to live out to His glory and in praise of His conquest. Knowledge of our personal freedom from the law that penetrates deep into the heart and recognition of our ability to trust God’s purpose for our lives will set us free to proclaim His love and grace in and through everything we do and to everyone we meet. 

Consider what it means, for yourself, to allow the work of the Lord the right and the access to the center of your will so that it would truly abound; the glory of Christ would be leaping up, roaring out, and impossible for anyone to not notice. Imagine the impact for Christ’s kingdom; visualize the joy that this sort of freedom brings. Know that this is your calling. In Christ the life described is yours; so, everything in it has value and worth.

Because of the gift that the Father gave us and the work of Jesus, we are now the living rocks on which God is building His church. We are the workers in the fields of life saving, world changing harvest that God has planted. We can know with total confidence and absolute conviction that the Lord is with us, that he will energize and guide us, and that working for God will never be burdened with the futility that marks most work. The Lord will bless all that is done for Him, and Christ’s will for your life is perfect and complete.
