1Corinthians 1:8,9 – Faithful is God

25-10-2018 - Posted by Andre Piet

Who will be confirming you also until the consummation unimpeachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is God, through Whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Regardless of the time of the revelation of Jesus Christ, sooner or later, it will take place. And until that time we can be assured that Jesus Christ will confirm us in our calling. For if GOD says A, then He also says B. Those whom GOD designates beforehand, these He calls also, and whom He calls, these He justifies also and whom He justifies, these He glorifies also (Rom 8:30). Nothing depends on humans. We are confirmed by our Lord Jesus Christ, in everything to which GOD calls us.

When this day will come, it is already certain in advance that those who are called are made unimpeachable and made perfectly suitable for their task. Paul emphasizes the fact that not our faithfulness but that of GOD is decisive for our final destination. Believers today form a special group, assembled beforehand, called to share in the communion of his Son. When the Son will soon be revealed, we share in it with him!
