Walk In The Faith

I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus, that in every way you were enriched in Him in all speech and all knowledge— even as the testimony about Christ was confirmed among you— so that you are not lacking in any gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:4–9

Though the Corinthians were young in the faith, still on spiritual milk, they didn’t lack any spiritual gift but were enriched in Christ Jesus in all speech and all knowledge. They were guiltless because of the grace that they received through faith in the finished work of our LORD Jesus Christ.

They were walking in power and working miracles, not because of anything else, but the grace of Jesus Christ that was at work in them. In other words, it was their faith that was reaching out and taking hold of the kingdom of God and His righteousness and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

So, even though the Corinthians were carnal and mere babes in Christ, even though they were on spiritual milk and not solid food, they lacked no spiritual gift, which suggests to me that spiritual gifts are not activated with maturity but with faith. You might be a one-hour-old Christian, but by faith, you can heal the sick, cast out demons, and raise the dead. You can do all these things through Christ, or a better way of putting it, through faith in Christ, who strengthens you and leads you into all truths.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Walk In The Faith.
