be steadfast, immovable, always abounding . . .

"Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruptibility, and this mortal must put on immortality. 

But when this corruptible will have put on the incorruptible, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, 

‘Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?’ 

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Therefore, my beloved brethren be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord."

- 1 Corinthians 15:51-58
