“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.”  (1 Corinthians 1:4-8)

Be thankful not only for the grace you have received, but also for the grace the Lord grants others.  The Lord knows those who are His, You do not.  Although all have been called, few obey the call.  Be one of those who obey and realize that all you need has been provided by the One who gave Himself for You that you may stand before the Father as one who is blameless.

Lord, teach me what all of these things mean.  Too often I become wrapped up in the ways of this world and hurriedly go about my business forgetting that I am to walk with You as You walk with me.  Lead me in the revelation You have given that I may learn how to become blameless even as I know Your grace makes me blameless.  Lead me by grace to become blameless in eternity.

Lord Jesus, You have empowered all who believe to walk boldly in the faith You give.  Grant me a willingness to always live by grace, proclaiming the good and gracious news of the salvation You alone make possible.  Conform me to You that I may be like You.  Teach me all I need to know that I would journey in faith with You until the day I stand before You face to face.  Amen.
