God's Grace through Christ Jesus

I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 1: 4-8)
  1. Paul always thanked God for His work in the Corinthian believers' live.
    - He did it continually and deliberately.
    - He thanked God for His grace through Christ Jesus.
  2.  The Corinthian believers were enriched in everything by Christ Jesus.
    - They were enriched with a great capacity to know the things of God.
    - They were enriched with a great ability to share the things of God.
  3. The gospel of Christ was confirmed and established among them.
  4. They were blessed with spiritual gifts.
  5. They would eagerly persevere to the end.
  6. They would be assured of their safety in Christ.
  7. They would be blameless to the end.
  • We must take time and effort to affirm and encourage fellow Christian believers.
  •  We must also thank God for what He is doing through them.
