God will keep us strong

God will keep us strong – 1 Cor 1:8-9

Vs 8 – Paul then emphasizes a promise.  God will keep the Christian strong to the end.  God will do His part and we must do our part.  The goal is to be blameless on the day of Christ’s appearing.  If we avail ourselves to the resources available we will be strong and blameless when Christ appears.  

Vs 9 – Paul then reveals another important promise.  God who has called us into fellowship with Him through Jesus Christ will be faithful.  There are two realities here.  God has called us friends through Jesus Christ and He is faithful.  Every man may be a liar but the word of God is true.  God will be faithful.   God has been faithful in the past, He will be faithful today and tomorrow.
