1 Corinthians 1:8 – He will strengthen you to the end blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Part 2 – Kept Blameless By Dependence On Jesus

The work of Christ Jesus functions in our life producing faith and assurance as a sure and steadfast anchor for our soul (Hebrews 6:19, 10:19-21). Christ Jesus, our only mediator, is at work interceding on our behalf and upholding us with the Word of His power. It is essential we hold fast to our confidence in Him and His saving work of grace that has made us partakers of His divine nature: this is the faith! (Hebrews 3:6,14, 10:35; Ephesians 3:12; Romans 8:17).

It cannot be overemphasized how we have been established together in Christ. Our life is in Him, and our perspective cannot be allowed to drift away from that unification (John 15:1-5). In Christ Jesus, God is maturing us; and in Him, God is both willing and doing of His good pleasure in us (Philippians 2:13). The power of God is at work in us so long as we remain yielded and dependent on Jesus (2 Corinthians 1:21; Philippians 2:13; Ephesians 4:20-21). Jesus will strengthen us and will keep us firm until the end – if we will continue to believe in Him and not ourselves.
