Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Do you get tired? Discouraged? Bummed out? Of course. All Christians do sometimes. The word “steadfast” is the Greek word “hedrios”, and it conveys several meanings. First, it means to be stationary, such as something that sits in one place for a long, long time.
It also describes something firm and steady; thus, this word was frequently used in connection with foundations in buildings. Therefore, Apostle Paul was calling on you and me to be totally reliable — not shaky or undependable.
We should be stationary in the roles where God has called us to serve. We shouldn’t be quickly shaken or easily lured to some other place or task. We must be like pillars in the place where we’ve been called to serve in the house of God.
