What happened before “Therefore…”

Rod Shimabukuro

[56]The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. [57]But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. [58]Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:56-58
Paul writes “Therefore…” in v.58 as our part to abide by and live out - to labor for the Lord in steadfastness and strength. I here perseverance, discipline, tenacity. But I must remember that Paul’s “Therefore” is based on Jesus resurrection! The inheritance I have is imperishable, eternal and death is swallowed up by the resurrection and sealed at the coming of the Lord!
All I can say is Yaaaaa-Hoooooooooooooooo unto JESUS!!!! Thank YOU JESUS!!!!!!!! I win…!! I win over sin through HIm! I win over death through Him. I win over the perishable through Him. I win over every power of spiritual darkness and evil because of Him. In Him, through Him, by Him… I win - because JESUS WON! HE IS ALIVE…and HE IS ALIVE IN ME!
Thank you! Praise You! THANK YOU….KING, LORD, GOD…JESUS!
