Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.

So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

1 Corinthians 1:7 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
So that ye come behind in no gift - Every gift and grace of God's Spirit was possessed by the members of that Church, some having their gifts after this manner, others after that.

"It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.
Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.
For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope.
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
1 Thessalonians 1:10
and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead--Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.
