Stand Firm and Let Nothing Move You
Except by Meg Bucher
“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.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 Every day, we go through experiences which tempt us to flinch, shy away, or run away in fear. But when we are brave enough to face challenges head on, the Lord blesses our obedience, and our bravery. Perhaps no one knew what it meant to be strong and immovable in faith more than Paul. He endured a tumultuous amount of torture on account of the gospel, but he also dished out his share of it before he encountered Christ and his life whip-lashed around! To be strong and immovable sometimes means having the strength to forgive ourselves and walk away from the sins and waywardness of our past lives. In Christ, we are a new creation. There is no reason we need to remain in the guilt and shame of our past before we surrendered to Him. When we are strong and immovable, we can walk into new life with and in Christ, never turning back!
Keith Miller said, “May we be fixed on the victory wrought at the cross. May we live in the fullness of our redemption, in the redemptive power of the cross. Praise the Lord! Don't lose heart, beloved. Don't grow weary. Don't lose focus. Don't lose vision. Don't take your eyes off of the command victory of the cross. You thought you were fixed on the purpose, but you need even more focus. No wavering. Don't be moved. “
