Paul, called to be an Apostle of Christ Jesus through the will of God--and our brother Sosthenes:
To the Church of God in Corinth, men and women consecrated in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all in every place who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ-- their Lord as well as ours.
May grace and peace be granted to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God continually on your behalf for the grace of God bestowed on you in Christ Jesus--
that you have been so richly blessed in Him, with readiness of speech and fulness of knowledge.
Thus my testimony as to the Christ has been confirmed in your experience,
so that there is no gift of God in which you consciously come short while patiently waiting for the reappearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who will also keep you stedfast to the very End, so that you will be free from reproach on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is ever true to His promises, and it was by Him that you were, one and all, called into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.
