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.

    As you have repented and turned from your former course...Keep your eye steady and continual to the path He has set...don 't be slumberson or tire in the good and faithful work of our Lord and Savior. Keep your eye on the heavenly purposed and fulfillment of His Word...building on that good foundation, uniting with those of old, and abiding through Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God...
