Paul, called to be an apostle1 of Christ Jesus by the will of God,2 and our brother Sosthenes,32
To the church of God4 in Corinth,5 to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called6 to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name7 of our Lord Jesus Christ--their Lord and ours:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.8
I always thank God for you9 because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.
For in him you have been enriched10 in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge11--
because our testimony12 about Christ was confirmed in you.
Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift13 as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.148
He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless15 on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.169
God, who has called you17 into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,18 is faithful.19
