“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.” 1 Corinthians 15:58
When we are reading the Bible it is important to remember there were no chapter breaks in the original manuscripts. Last week we covered 1 Corinthians 15 where Paul focused in on the resurrection, the last trumpet and the victory over death we have in the Lord Jesus Christ. The chapter concluded with the verse above, which is an exhortation from Paul to enter into true worship. True worship is much more than an emotional experience, it is when the Spirit of the Lord is so present in our lives that we give ourselves entirely to Him and strive to always be abounding in the work of the Lord.
The word “abounding” means “to be or to have more than enough”. Do you feel as though you have more than enough? Are you completely satisfied with your life? If your answer is “No, I do not have more than enough, I am not completely satisfied,” then you will not want to miss Sunday’s message from 1 Corinthians 16:1-9. In this passage we will learn that when “Worship Leads to Works”, we will always be satisfied and we will always abound in the Lord.
God bless you and hope to see you there!
