    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4

    Gracias doy a mi Dios siempre por vosotros, por la gracia de Dios que os es dada en el Cristo Jess;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 1:4

    Verse 4. For the grace-which is given you] Not only their calling to be
    saints, and to be sanctified in Christ Jesus; but for the various spiritual gifts which they had received, as specified in the succeeding verses.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. I
    thank my God always on your behalf , etc.] Now follows a thanksgiving for various blessings bestowed upon this church, which is a proof of the apostles great affection for it, and how much its welfare lay at his heart. The object of thanksgiving is God, for as he is the author of all mercies, the glory and praise of them ought to be given to him. The apostle styles him my God, to distinguish him from others; and to express his faith of interest in him; and to observe to this church, that all the good things they enjoyed came from him, who was his God and their God, his Father and their Father; and for which reason he returned thanks to him for them, and by so doing set them an example: the persons on whose behalf he gave thanks were not at this time himself and Sosthenes, but the members of the church at Corinth; and the continuance of his thankfulness for them, is always, as often as he went to the throne of grace, or at any other time thought of them: what he particularly gives thanks to God for in this verse is, for the grace which is given you by Jesus Christ : and includes all sorts of grace, adopting, justifying, pardoning, regenerating, and sanctifying grace; every particular grace of the Spirit, as faith, repentance, hope, love, fear, humility, self-denial, etc. all are gifts of God, and entirely owing to his free grace, and not to mans free will and power, or to any merits of his; and all come through the hands of Christ, and are given forth by him, as the Mediator of the covenant, and in consequence of his blood, righteousness, sacrifice, and merit.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - All
    Christians are by baptism dedicated and devoted to Christ, and ar under strict obligations to be holy. But in the true church of God ar all who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, and wh call upon him as God manifest in the flesh, for all the blessings of salvation; who acknowledge and obey him as their Lord, and as Lord of all; it includes no other persons. Christians are distinguished from the profane and atheists, that they dare not live without prayer; an they are distinguished from Jews and pagans, that they call on the nam of Christ. Observe how often in these verses the apostle repeats the words, Our Lord Jesus Christ. He feared not to make too frequent or to honourable mention of him. To all who called upon Christ, the apostl gave his usual salutation, desiring, in their behalf, the pardonin mercy, sanctifying grace, and comforting peace of God, through Jesu Christ. Sinners can have no peace with God, nor any from him, but through Christ. He gives thanks for their conversion to the faith of Christ; that grace was given them by Jesus Christ. They had bee enriched by him with all spiritual gifts. He speaks of utterance an knowledge. And where God has given these two gifts, he has given grea power for usefulness. These were gifts of the Holy Ghost, by which God bore witness to the apostles. Those that wait for the coming of ou Lord Jesus Christ, will be kept by him to the end; and those that ar so, will be blameless in the day of Christ, made so by rich and fre grace. How glorious are the hopes of such a privilege; to be kept by the power of Christ, from the power of our corruptions and Satan' temptations!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    4. I
    thank (eucaristw). Found in the Gospels, Acts, and Revelation, but most frequently in Paul.

    My God. Some very high authorities omit. The pronoun implies close personal relationship. Compare Acts xxvii. 23; Philip. i. 3; iii. 8. By Christ Jesus (en). Better, as Rev., in; in fellowship with. The element or sphere in which the grace is manifested.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:4 {I thank my God} (eucaristw twi qewi). Singular as in #Ro 1:8; Php 1:3; Phm 1:4, but plural in #1Th 1:2; Col 1:3. The grounds of Paul's thanksgivings in his Epistles are worthy of study. Even in the church in Corinth he finds something to thank God for, though in II Cor. there is no expression of thanksgiving because of the acute crisis in Corinth nor is there any in Galatians. But Paul is gracious here and allows his general attitude (always, pantote) concerning (peri, around) the Corinthians to override the specific causes of irritation. {For the grace of God which was given to you in Christ Jesus} (epi ti cariti tou qeou ti dotheisi humin en Christ"i iesou). Upon the basis of (epi) God's grace, not in general, but specifically given (doqeisei, first aorist passive participle of didwmi), in the sphere of (en as in verse #2) Christ Jesus.
