A purpose based on the promise

by | Apr 1, 2024 | Genuine Hope | 0 comments

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

Yesterday, we celebrated that the cross isn’t the end of the story because of the resurrection of Christ. And it is in the resurrection that we have hope of something more, something better beyond this life.

You’ve heard it many times that when you see the word “therefore” the word refers back to a previous thought. The verse above refers back to Paul’s entire argument for the resurrection of Christ and for the resurrection we all look forward as promised in Scripture. If you haven’t read it yet, take the time to read the entire chapter today. Click here.

How are we to respond? Paul gives two answers followed by a promise –

  • Stand firm in your faith. Don’t be distracted by life’s circumstances.
  • Make Christ’s kingdom the purpose of your life, pointing others to the promise of salvation.

Because of Christ’s resurrection, we know that our life has a purpose based on His promise.

My prayer is that Easter was meaningful for each one of us this year in a noticeably different way.
