     The Lord add His blessing 
     to the reading of His
     Word — the Word of God

     Thanks be to God!

1 Corinthians 1:10-18 (New International Version)


I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, 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, but that you be perfectly united in mind
and thought. My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s
household have informed me that there are quarrels
among you. What I mean is this: One of you says,
“I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another,
“I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.”

Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you
baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I did not
baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, so no one
can say that you were baptized in my name. (Yes, I also
baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I
don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.) For Christ did
not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not
with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be
emptied of its power.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who
are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the
power of God.
