1 Corinthians 1:1-9 Reading the Passage

I Thank My God Always for You – 1 Corinthians 1:1-9

1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, (2) to the church of God that is in Corinth—to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be saints together with all those everywhere who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, (he is both their Lord and ours.) (3) Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (4) I always thank my God for you, because of the grace of God that was given to you in Christ Jesus; (5) so that in everything you were enriched in him—with all speech and all knowledge—(6) just as our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. (7) Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. (8) God will also confirm you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (9) God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

A note on the Scripture text that accompanies each individual message: The American Standard Version and the New International Version, along with the original Greek and Hebrew, have been used in an effort to achieve the greatest degree of accuracy and clarity. Where words or phrases have been added to the original text in an effort to better express its meaning, those words or phrases have usually been indicated by means of italics.
