1 Corinthians 1:1-9
Points to Consider
If you are a believer, your primary identity is in Jesus Christ.
- Sanctified in Christ Jesus.
- Called to be saints.
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 12:13, Galatians 3:27-28, Colossians 3:10-11
In one sense, saints are sanctified at a point in time.
- Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you. Romans 6:3-6
- And such were some of you: but ye are washed… 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
- Anyone in Christ is a new creature. 2 Corinthians 5:17
In another sense, saints are sanctified more and more until the day of the Lord.
- The Corinthians are sanctified but not yet blameless.
- And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly… 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
He will present the saints faultless.
- Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling… Jude 1:24
- That ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God does this, and he is faithful.
