Main point summary
Paul seeks to dispense grace and thanks for the Christian Corinthians to God who 1) gave (past) the confirmed gift of the testimony of Christ to preserve them and 2) will preserve (future) them by his own extraordinary faithfulness, which is what drew them into their union with Christ in the first place.

to those called holy,

I give thanks to my God always concerning you

through whom you were called
εἰς κοινωνίαν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν.

Verse 4 and Verse 9 say the same thing --> Chiastic relationship
Antecedent is God (the one who offers the gift and is faithful)
We see both his generosity of giving and his sovereign power as the source of our persevering -- he gives us what we need to experience his grace, WHILE he ALSO, without our knowing it via experience, preserves us.
