Corinthians 1:3-8

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

 I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.

 For in him you have been enriched in every way—

with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge—

 God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you.

 Therefore, you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly

 wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.

 He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be

blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
