1 Corinthians 1:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 To the church of God1 in Corinth,2 to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called3 to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name4 of our Lord Jesus Christ--their Lord and ours: 3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.5

Thanksgiving

4 I always thank God for you6 because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5 For in him you have been enriched7 in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge8-- 6 because our testimony9 about Christ was confirmed in you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift10 as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.11 8 He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless12 on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.13 9 God, who has called you14 into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,15 is faithful.16

Divisions in the Church

10 I appeal to you, brothers,17 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you18 and that you may be perfectly united19 in mind and thought. 11 My brothers, some from Chloe's household20 have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12 What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul";21 another, "I follow Apollos";22 another, "I follow Cephasa ";23 still another, "I follow Christ."
