Nothing in Vain

‘Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, 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.”December 3 2014 nothing in vain

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.

Love it!

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.

Not me.

But totally sold out to Jesus is me.  So I’m proud to be a Jesus freak 🙂
