BEING UNMOVABLE

Read:
1 Corinthians 15:58

Bible in one year:
1 Chronicles 7-9
Proverbs 27:1-14

Hymn:
Sing hymn 12

As Christians, it is necessary that we are settled in our convictions, steadfast in faith and established in the Word of God. We should also be unmovable wherever external forces are concerned. We should be like a ship in a storm, solidly anchored. The winds may toss it to and fro, but it will only move around without being seriously troubled. A ship that is properly anchored will not be affected by the waves and the wind on the surface. 1 Corinthians 15:58 says;
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

While this passage may have a general usage, it has a more specific meaning than what is usually assigned to it. Unmovable or immovable means incapable of being moved, it means no matter what the devil does, the solid foundation of faith, which is built on the Word of God will hold things together. We must not allow ourselves to be moved away from what is right. Paul said, “Be not carried about with the divers and strange doctrines” (Hebrews 13:9). Furthermore, Colossians 2:6-7 says,
“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”

There are constantly new forces, new invasions, new innovations which seek to push off course. We must be unmovable in the face of such attacks. The Christian’s anchor is his faith and hope in the power of God. We are secure in the face of such attacks, always abounding in the work of the Lord. We must be constant, dedicated, unswerving in our dedication. The “work of the Lord” is what God has assigned to us. It includes not only our personal growth, but the growth of the church. Our love for God can be measured to some extent by how much we are willing to do. If one does “just enough to get by” his love is at best questionable.

‘Abounding’ means surpassing that which is required, or necessary for us. It militates against stagnation, separates the convicted from the nearly so, promotes spiritual health and well being, and amplifies the hope we have in Christ. That person who seeks to abound will seek opportunities to serve. He will not ask, “Do I have to?” but “what can I do?” Our labour is not in vain, both our labour and our hope are secure in Jesus. If we are steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in His work, we will reap in due season, if we faint not.

Memorise:
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:11

Prayer Point:
Father, please let my anchor hold firmly on You. Don’t let me ever fail in Jesus’ Name.

CAN SATAN RIGHTLY ACCUSE YOU?

CAN SATAN RIGHTLY ACCUSE YOU?

Besides discouragement, another weapon Satan uses often against believers is their weaknesses. He simply studies an individual for a period of time and not long after, he identifies the fellow’s weakness and capitalizes on it. Take for instance Peter. Satan discovered that Peter is a cowardly person-lacking in...More

KNOWLEDGE IS LIMITED

Wisdom is commonly defined as the correct application of knowledge. Wisdom therefore feeds on knowledge, and the type of knowledge applied determines the type of wisdom you get. According to the Bible, there are many kinds of wisdom. There is the wisdom of words in 1 Corinthians 1:17, the wisdom of the world in...More
