A friend sent this passage of scripture to me in a card yesterday. I wanted to pass it on to all of you out there who are called to the body of Christ - as a prayer for your lives.
1 Corinthians 1:4-9
Thanksgiving [Paul writing to the Corinthians]
4 I always thank God for you because of His grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5 For in Him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— 6 because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8 He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God, who has called you into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. [emphasis mine]
Praying God's Word:
Thank you for my brothers and sisters in Christ. Because of Him they overflow in every way - the way they speak and think - because of what we share in Christ - the very thing that seals us to Him. May they participate by using the spiritual gifts He has given them until Jesus comes - for "kingdom" purposes. May they depend on Him for strength so they can walk in Him - always choosing what is right before Him. Thank you God, for calling us into fellowship with Jesus, You are always faithful in all Your ways! We praise You!
