Advent Day 2

I Corinthians 1:3-9
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you.Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

The "you" in verse 7 is plural.  Paul is saying y'all or you guys or all of you as Christ followers. Together as the bride of Christ we lack no spiritual gift.  Your salvation is personal but it is not private. It is not just you and Jesus, that goes against what Scripture teaches.  A solo Christian is unheard of. So during this advent season we come together and we eagerly await for Jesus to be revealed.
