- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
15:58 Be ye steadfast - In yourselves. Unmovable - By others; continually increasing in the work of faith and labour of love. Knowing your labour is not in vain in the Lord - Whatever ye do for his sake shall have its full reward in that day. Let us also endeavour, by cultivating holiness in all its branches, to maintain this hope in its full energy; longing for that glorious day, when, in the utmost extent of the expression, death shall be swallowed up for ever, and millions of voices, after the long silence of the grave, shall burst out at once into that triumphant song, O death, where is thy sting? O hades, where is thy victory?
1Co 15:58 Therefore, brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable. Firm as a rock, devoted to Christian life, for their "faith is not vain". Compare 1Co 15:14,17. Ye know that your labour is not vain in the Lord. Jesus Christ is The Resurrection and the Life (Joh 11:25). The hope of immortality hath sure foundations.

The work of God is a real labour but one thing is sure, we'll never go unrewarded because it's not in vain. God is not a man that He should lie. 'We must see Him as He is, face to face, when Jesus shall come'... Hallelujah...

We are the beloved children of God.Our destiny is to live with Christ when He returns for his bride.
Continue to prepare for your life together at last when you see him face to face.The time for everlasting life will be your reward.Let no temporary hardship or trial turn you away for wearing your crown.God is not a man that He should lie.My hope and trust is in the Lord.Amen

It is a place for every one that call himself a Christian should read and mediate on it day and night. Also a place of hope for christian who hope for his appearing and the rapture of the saints.
