“So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” 1 Cor 15:58 (NLT)
I’m sure you are familiar with the Greek myth of Sisyphus who was condemned to roll a boulder to the top of a mountain and which would then roll back to the bottom for him to repeat this each day for eternity. Life without purpose is meaningless.
In this verse Paul reminds us that nothing we ever do for God is useless. Everything I have ever done for God, He will use to build His kingdom. What a fantastic encouragement!
We can enthusiastically throw ourselves into whatever we are doing for God confident that it is more than just words, more than just actions, it is an investment in something that will last forever.
Knowing this lifts our eyes to see past how things appear. Knowing that nothing we do is ever useless enables us to be strong in the face of opposition. It enables us is to remain immovable even when circumstances seek to push us in the opposite direction.
God has placed you where you are today for a purpose, you are called to be light in a dark place and the amazing thing is that God will provide all you need to ensure that what you do He will use to bring blessing.
