God is the one who invited you into the fellowship of his dear Son, Jesus Christ. He called us to be saints, and by believing we answered His call to be his own holy people. He made us holy saints by means of Christ Jesus, "just as he did for all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours" 1 Corinthians 1:2.
There is enough grace for you in the fellowship; "That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 1:5-7.
Grace simply means God is helping you, he has given you gifts, and now that you are in Christ, you’ve good grace, favour, and God’s most important consideration for life situations. In this fellowship, you’re not on your own - God’s inexhaustible grace is with you. No wonder why Paul said, "Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 1:3.
You’ve been called to be saints, "for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 1:4. But first, Christ has to be confirmed/born in you, before you can partake of this grace. When you do this, he will also confirm you to the end.
Those who are called, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God, "that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God-and righteousness and sanctification and redemption- that, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the LORD."" 1 Corinthians 1:29-31.
Different as we are God invited us into the fellowship of his Son, and is become to us the author and finisher of our faith. He’s our Lord, meaning he became our righteousness, sanctification and redemption.
