Read 1 Corinthians 1:3-9
3 May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
4 I always give thanks to my God for you because of the grace he has given you through Christ Jesus. 5For in union with Christ you have become rich in all things, including all speech and all knowledge. 6The message about Christ has become so firmly established in you 7that you have not failed to receive a single blessing, as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be faultless on the Day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is to be trusted, the God who called you to have fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Paul begins with a positive word for the Corinthians; he reflects on the blessings that they have received.
In Verse 10 he begins to reprimand them... calling them to unity, reminding them of their high calling in Christ.
Lord, may our church reveal you to the world. May we be your body - united with you as our King.
