Work of Eternal Significance

Eternal Significance“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 (NKJV)

A day at the practice range can be the cure for a number of ills. Or it can be a source of frustration. How often have you hit the ball well on the range, only to have your swing fall apart on the course? Now, that is work done in vain.

Catastrophic loss can steal our life’s work too. Only if our work is work of eternal significance are we insured against catastrophe—not only that, but also against fear and hatred and malice.

The apostle Paul knew all about such troubles. His enemies sought to shut him up and tear him down, jail him and murder him. Yet he was strong in encouraging us all to do the work of the Lord, because he knew that such labor was not done in vain.
