Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift1 as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.28
He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless3 on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.49
God, who has called you5 into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,6 is faithful.7
I appeal to you, brothers,8 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you9 and that you may be perfectly united10 in mind and thought.
My brothers, some from Chloe's household11 have informed me that there are quarrels among you.
What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul";12 another, "I follow Apollos";13 another, "I follow Cephasa ";14 still another, "I follow Christ."
Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized intob the name of Paul?1514
I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus16 and Gaius,1715
so no one can say that you were baptized into my name.
(Yes, I also baptized the household18 of Stephanas;19 beyond that, I don't remember if I baptized anyone else.)
For Christ did not send me to baptize,20 but to preach the gospel--not with words of human wisdom,21 lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
