1 Corinthians 1:5-15 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible
5 You have been blessed in every way because of him. All your teaching of the truth is better. Your understanding of it is more complete. 6 Our witness about Christ has been proved to be true in you. 7 There is no gift of the Holy Spirit that you don't have. You are full of hope as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to come again. 8 God will keep you strong to the very end. Then you will be without blame on the day our Lord Jesus Christ returns. 9 God is faithful. He has chosen you to share life with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Taking Sides in the Church

10 Brothers and sisters, I ask all of you to agree with one another. I make my appeal in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Then you won't take sides. You will be in complete agreement in all that you think. 11 My brothers and sisters, some people who live in Chloe's house have told me you are arguing with each other. 12 Here is what I mean. One of you says, "I follow Paul." Another says, "I follow Apollos." Another says, "I follow Peter." And still another says, "I follow Christ." 13 Does Christ take sides? Did Paul die on the cross for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I'm thankful that I didn't baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius. 15 No one can say that you were baptized in my name.
