This is one of my life verses.
Stand firm – grounded in the truth with my eyes focused on Jesus.
Not Moving – faithfully following Christ is the life I’ve chosen. Nothing is going to change that.
Always give myself fully to the work of the Lord – it’s all about God. Sometimes I still need to remind myself about that. And the ‘work’ of the Lord is everything I do, not just what I do at the office.
Nothing I do for God is in vain. This is my favorite part of this verse.
How much of our time is spent on worthless things? Things that have no kingdom value?
A lot! Too much!
But everything I do for God is valuable. Everything I do in his name has meaning. Nothing I do for God is a waste of my time.
If we want our lives to have purpose and be worthwhile, we need to be all about God!
I’m smiling as I remember the day that I realized I had become a ‘Jesus freak’ 🙂 It kind of shocked me because the words bring to my mind an image of a hippy looking person driving around in a VW Van with flowers painted on it.
But totally sold out to Jesus is me. So I’m proud to be a Jesus freak 🙂
