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

View In My Bible
5 For in him you have been enriched1 in every way--with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge2-- 6 God thus confirming our testimony3 about Christ among you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift4 as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.5 8 He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless6 on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.7 9 God is faithful,8 who has called you9 into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.10

A Church Divided Over Leaders

10 I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,11 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you,12 but that you be perfectly united13 in mind and thought. 11 My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe's household14 have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12 What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul";15 another, "I follow Apollos";16 another, "I follow Cephasa ";17 still another, "I follow Christ." 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized intob the name of Paul?18 14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus19 and Gaius,20 15 so no one can say that you were baptized into my name.
