Your Labor in the Lord’s work Is Not in Vain

Our God is VICORIOUS!

Reading through the book of 1 Corinthians, encouragement for the work that’s done through ICM seemed to leap right off the page…

In this letter, Paul is answering the church’s specific questions.  He exhorts their sinful behaviors. And teaches them correct practices both with one another and with outsiders.  He warns them of their past and reminds them of their future.

This seemed so timely having just celebrated the death and resurrection of our Savior! 

In chapter 15, Paul begins by clarifying the gospel.  He reminds the believers…

“I proclaimed the gospel to you; you received it and have taken your stand on it.  You are saved by it.”

He then defends the truth that Christ was raised from the dead and calls His resurrection VICTORY.  

Our victorious God offers us the chance to share in His victory!  He has given it to us through His Son, Jesus Christ.

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!  Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”   1 Corinthians 15:57-58
