Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:58


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?


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:58


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.

    To Greg: I like your comment; Gal.2:21 is another verse to go with it.
  • Greg
    It is good to know that God provided a way to heaven through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus would not lie and would not come to earth just to be labeled a good person, prophet, or miracle worker. He came to end spiritual death for all those that would rely on His blood sacrifice for their salvation. Good works is not the answer if so than his blood is powerless. Works are corruptible not His blood
  • Craig

    Its a Lot to digest, then I thought after I thought that, that it makes sense because we are being fed the Word of God when we read the Word. What do you think? Anyone? This Chapter says so much. Paul had a conversion to Jesus like many have not experienced as far as we know. I love that we shall be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of and eye. I am so thankful for Jesus. Thank the Lord!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Note the mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
