“I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus, that in every way you were enriched in him in all speech and all knowledge— even as the testimony about Christ was confirmed among you— so that you are not lacking in any gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:4-9)
In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul right off the bat wanted to share with the members there his love and care for them. He was very thankful for them and loved them very much. He wanted them to know how much they meant to him and how much he wanted them to know the love of Jesus more fully and deeply.
Paul wanted the Corinthians to know how much Jesus loved them and that He was the sustainer of their lives. Before getting into anything else, Paul made it a point to share this with the Corinthians.
The same is true for us today as well. We should be grateful for the grace that has been given to us by God through Jesus Christ. He is the one that sustains us and gives us hope. He is the one that loves us so much and is faithful.
This week, let us live in that hope. And more so let us share that hope with others.
