To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ - their Lord and ours: (1 Corinthians 1:2)
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 1:3)
I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. (1 Corinthians 1:4)
For in him you have been enriched in every way - in all your speaking and in all your knowledge - (1 Corinthians 1:5)
because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. (1 Corinthians 1:6)
Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. (1 Corinthians 1:7)
He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 1:8)
God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. (1 Corinthians 1:9)
