Scripture Memory Monday

David reminded me of the following verse as we wrapped up this Labor Day.

No matter what we do day in and day out,
may we always abound in the work of the Lord.

"Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast,
immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord,
knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain."
1 Corinthians 15:58 (ESV)

At the beginning of the verse - as my husband would say - we must ask, 
"what is the 'therefore' there for?"

The "therefore" is referring to the previous verses regarding 
the resurrection of Christ and His ultimate victory over death. 

That's why our labor is not in vain . . . because Jesus is alive!

Hallelujah!  Amen!
