1 Corinthians 1:5
For you were made rich in every way in Him, in all your speech and in every kind of knowledge—
But Christ, God’s faithful Son, is in complete charge of God’s house. And we Christians are God’s house—He lives in us!—if we keep up our courage firm to the end, and our joy and our trust in the Lord.
It was not because you were greater than all other people that the Lord loved you and chose you. In fact, you were the smallest of peoples! No, it is because the Lord loved you and because He kept the solemn pledge He swore to your ancestors that the Lord brought you out with a strong hand and saved you from the house of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh, Egypt’s king.
