Scripture Read 1 Corinthians 1-2
Nugget 1 Corinthians 1:1-9
“Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes. To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus, for in every way you have been enriched in him, in speech and knowledge of every kind – just as the testimony of Christ has been strengthened among you – so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Devotional thought: We are all called to be followers of Jesus Christ to be Apostles, those who are sent out to make disciples. Apostles of Jesus Christ are called to be holy, those called to holiness are disciples to be sent out. He who calls also purifies and strengthens. Give thanks to God; the One who is faithful, the One who showers us with grace so that we can be holy as He is Holy by His grace. Take a moment, look deep within, asked God to reveal any and everything that you don’t see. Give all that is not of God to God, ask forgiveness and an anointing of God’s Holy Spirit to fill the void.
