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 in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:
 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.  For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you.  Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.  He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Verse 9 shouts at us, "God is faithful!" As we enter into this Christmas season I hope that each and every one of us holds firmly to the promises of God. Christmas is all about the coming of Christ, as it was promised in Scripture. At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Christ.
Because of their faith, they have been given grace.
Because of their faith they stand lacking no gift as they wait for the coming of the Lord.
Because of their faith, they will be found blameless because God is faithful.
1 Corinthians 1:8-9 says, "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" (NIV).
