Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Cor. 15:58

Are you Fixed or Fickle?

To be fixed is to be set, permanent, unchanging, or predetermined.  To be fickle is to be indecisive, inconsistent, always changing or unpredictable.  If you are one of God’s children, you ought to be fixed and not fickle.  1 Cor. 15:58 says, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”  God’s people ought to be so fixed [stedfast, unmovable and always abounding in their work for the Lord] that their testimony bears witness that they are set concerning the things of the Lord. In order for you to be fixed concerning the things of the Lord, there are predetermined choices that you must make before questions or situations arise.  These predetermined choices give testimony to a decisive, consistent, unchanging, predictable life that God uses for His glory and the good of mankind.  The fixed life is based upon trusting and obeying the Lord and His Word rather than doing what pleases the flesh.  God does reward the believer who is fixed in his heart concerning the Lord.  The psalmist said in Psalm 112:7, “He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.”  Would you consider your heart fixed, trusting in the Lord, or are you fickle, trusting in yourself?
