2 Corinthians 1:21-22
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
Who makes us stand firm in Christ? It is God. This is not to say that we do not give effort at all, or should not take action when we see an unmet need, or despair or heartache. We should act on these occasions and we are compelled to by His Spirit in our hearts. That same Spirit is the deposit, sealing us in Christ and in right relationship with God. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit; He seeks to lead us in the way we should live.
