Your Labor is Not in Vain

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in

the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” (I

Corinthians 15:58, NKJV)



As servants of God, if we are honest with ourselves, we sometimes wonder if all

the sacrifice and service we render is worth it. Be it in ministry, work or our

relationships, we may sometimes question if there is really a reward, a “pay off,”

for all the labor, pain, disappointments and sorrow. If you are like me, sometimes

you wonder if you are the only one who really cares. The only one trying. The

only one working to keep things together.


Yet, when these questions arise in my mind, I am reminded of the words of Paul

from the fifty-eight verse of First Corinthians chapter fifteen, “. . . be steadfast,

immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is

not in vain in the Lord.”


It is not easy living a Christian life in an increasingly non-Christian world. Yet we

must know that all our love, service and sacrifice does not go unnoticed by God.

All you do is not a waste of time or effort. All you suffer will not be unrewarded.

You must know and encourage yourself in this, YOUR LABOR IS NOT IN

VAIN.
