I CORINTHIANS 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding….
Apostle Paul was writing to the Church in Corinth (and by extension, today’s Church), and started by reminding them about the validity of Christ’s resurrection and its significance. He compared the life of an unregenerated soul with that of first Adam; while Jesus Christ represents the image of the new man. The Apostle reiterated the validity of the doctrine of resurrection spreading amongst the believers which portend to unsettle some of them and wrote to encourage them to keep holding on to the ‘Truth’ and defend it.
What does be ye steadfast connote? I suggest to you that it means to stand your ground, to not give up an inch to the devil and holding forth. There are plethora of events that will threaten your steadfastness but remember that a house erected on a solid rock will survive all storms (Matt 7:24-25).
To be unmoveable is to be immobile in one’s conviction of following the Lord Jesus Christ. Be resolute and refuse to negotiate your faith for any mundane things (Galatians 1:8). Many things are tempting people to be separated from the Lord today; nonetheless, there are enormous provisions from God to withstand every temptation (Romans 8: 35-37).
When you are steadfast in the faith and sturdily established in the truth, you will flourish in the work of God because evil wind and boisterous waves will bye-pass you. You will not be affected by every wind of doctrine and cunning craftiness of deceivers of our time; rather you will be able to see through every dangerous move of the wicked ones.
