Read 1 Corinthians 1:1-9
1 From Paul, who was called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and from our brother Sosthenes-
2 To the church of God which is in Corinth, to all who are called to be God’s holy people, who belong to him in union with Christ Jesus, together with all people everywhere who worship our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours:
3 May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
4 I always give thanks to my God for you because of the grace he has given you through Christ Jesus. 5For in union with Christ you have become rich in all things, including all speech and all knowledge. 6The message about Christ has become so firmly established in you 7that you have not failed to receive a single blessing, as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be faultless on the Day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is to be trusted, the God who called you to have fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.
“I always give thanks to my God for you because of the grace he has given you through Christ Jesus. For in union with Christ you have become rich in all things, including all speech and all knowledge.”
- 1 Corinthians 1:4-5
You might not have noticed it yet. But as you ask God to give you his Holy Spirit; to help you be more like Jesus; you have become more like Jesus. God promises to help us; and God delivers on his promise.
Loving God, thank you for the work that you have begun in me. We both know that you’re not finished yet. Be patient with me as you always are; transform me more and more each day.
