In writing to the Corinthian church, Paul began with thanksgiving for God’s enduring and sustaining faithfulness in the lives of His people. The church in Corinth was struggling at the time, conflicted and divided. They needed to be reminded of who they were in Jesus and the purpose for which He had called them. Paul emphasizes all that God has done in the past as he speaks to their present situation. He reminds them that God’s faithfulness endures forever, sustaining and enabling His people’s faithfulness and perseverance in faith. Where are you depending on God’s faithfulness today to continue to live, lead, and love like Jesus?
God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. —1 Corinthians 1:9
Prayer: God, your enduring faithfulness is exactly what we need to look to when we face leadership challenges. We take time now to meditate on and thank You for Your faithfulness revealed in and through Jesus our Lord. Amen.
