1 Cor. 3:21-23

Tom Harding

Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's. (1 Cor. 3:21-23).

God's apostle gives to every believer great reason to have assurance and confidence resting in the Lord Jesus Christ, "All things are for your sake" (2 Cor. 4:15; Rom 8:32). This cannot be said of those who refuse to trust Christ and rest in their own righteousness, the only thing that belongs to them is the wages of sin (Rom. 6:23). But to those who by sovereign grace rest in Christ, our great God and Saviour has supplied all our need abundantly, eternally and freely (Phil. 4:19). Notice some of the spiritual blessing of grace mentioned in these verses.
