1 Corinthians 1:9 - Through the faithfulness of God, we were called into
the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

God has brought us into a divine and sacred partnership with His Son. The
Almighty God has poured out the sacred anointing oil upon us and anointed
us "sons of God" (John 1:12; 1 John 3:1, 2:20, 27). The anointing
transferred upon our lives the authority and power to have all things in
common with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (John 17:21-22; Colossians
1:28; 2 Corinthians 13:5; Philippians 1:21; Ephesians 5:30; also: John
15:4; Galatians 2:20).

We were called and chosen by God to be conformed to the image of His Son.
To be heirs and joint heirs with Him and to be seated together in the place
of authority with Him in the realm of the Heavenlies from where all power
and rights proceed (Romans 8:17-29). We are God's representatives in the
Earth ordained to carry out the divine work of His Son. We have been
honored with the sacred privilege of representing God as those who have His
nature and spiritual likeness (Ephesians 4:24; Romans 8:30; 2 Corinthians
3:6, 5:20; 2 Thessalonians 2:14; also: 1 John 1:3; John 20:21; 2
Corinthians 6:1).

Through the act of God's faith, or faithfulness, we have become sons.
Through His continual faithfulness to us, we are given the grace to be
empowered to develop into all He has purposed us to be in Christ Jesus. God
is at work in us to develop us into the full spiritual maturity of His Son,
Christ Jesus (Ephesians 4:13; Philippians 1:6, 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 5:24;
also: 2 Corinthians 3:5, 9:8). Rest assured, all who have thoroughly
studied the Word of God agree that we have been called into a sacred
participation in Christ's Sonship. We may also be assured that God is
trustworthy, and we can count on Him to provide all we need to accomplish
all that He has purposed!
