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.

– 1 Corinthians 1:5-7 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

The apostle Paul is telling the Corinthians that God has given them everything that they need if they are in Christ. The new creation in Christ Jesus is enriched in every way—there is no lack of ability for the believer. But we are bombarded with the dialogue of our old ways. We constantly see our past, our inabilities. This is why it is so important to renew our minds and put on the new self, made in the likeness of Christ, and put away the old self, for God Himself will work through us as we adjust our lives to the promises that He gives us in His word.
