Our faithful Father

I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:4-9

From the text, the Apostle Paul expressed several truths that should be the realities in the lives of every believer. The first thing he mentioned is that Christians are saved by His grace. This grace that comes alone from God had enriched Christians in their speech and knowledge. This is what makes them different from how they used to live. And as they grow in their relationship with God, they realized the gift He provided them so that they could live a life of testimony. Their relationship with Christ and His righteousness are what will be paraded in the end as the reason why Christians were made acceptable before God. As Paul said, “God is faithful.” He is active, alive, and powerful working in the lives of His children. He is engaged in your life daily. Each day of your life, you experience God’s lovingkindness and compassion. This is part of His faithful working in your life. He is intimately involved in helping you out live His purpose for your life. But despite of what He does to mold you into the life He wants for you, you still find a way to rebel against His will and to follow your own desires. Again, God provides His answer to your waywardness by allowing you to experience His faithfulness. “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning” (Lamentations 3:22-23). God knows our tendencies to resist His ways and it His mercies that He provides daily that brings you back to Him. Ponder upon this truth each day and think that no matter how you might fail Him, God wants you to be renewed by experiencing His lovingkindness and compassion. God does not get tired in your failed ways. As Jeremiah thought of the continued disobedience of the Israelites in the Book of Lamentations, he counted on God’s faithfulness shown through His mercy given daily. God desires that you remain close to His heart and stay on the path He knew best for you to take. When you stray, go back to His love that is so deep and infinite renewed daily by His grace and mercy for “you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Blessings,
