1:0 1 Corinthians 1:1-3

1:1 As your apostle, I greet you Corinthian believers, and I desire that God bless you.

1:4 I thank God for you and for all the spiritual abilities that he has given you.

1:10 Stop dividing into groups in your congregations on the basis of which Christian leader you favor.

1:18 The message about Christ dying on the cross is the means of saving us who believe it.

1:20 Some people think that the message about Christ is foolish, but to us whom God has chosen, it shows God’s power.

1:26 God chose mostly despised, not important, people to belong to Christ; so you should boast only about him.

2:1 God showed that my message was true by the powerful things that he did, not because I spoke in a way that would make people think highly of me.

2:6 Unbelievers do not consider that my message is wise, because I speak what God’s Spirit reveals to me.

3:1 I was unable to teach you difficult concepts, because you were controlled by your self-directed nature, as evidenced by your quarreling about which leader you should be loyal to.

3:5 I preached the gospel to you first, and Apollos followed, but we are both serving God equally.

3:9b Each one who teaches believers must examine what he is teaching them because God will reward him only if his teaching is valuable and long-lasting.

3:16 God will destroy anyone who destroys the unity of a congregation.

3:18 Stop being proud of one Christian leader or another, because we are all just working for your benefit.

4:1 Stop evaluating your leaders’ value; do not be proud of one and despise another.

4:8 It is disgusting that you are so proud of your spiritual gifts and that you despise us apostles.

4:14 Imitate the way in which I serve Christ.

4:18 I hope you will change your thinking, so I do not have to punish you when I come there.

5:1 You should expel the man in your congregation who has acted so immorally.

5:6 Make sure that no one in your congregation is acting immorally or maliciously or wickedly.

5:9 Expel wicked people from your congregation.

6:1 It is disgusting that you prosecute fellow believers and let judges who are not believers decide your cases.

6:7 God has freed you from your former sinful behavior, so remember that he will exclude from his kingdom those who engage in all kinds of sinful behavior.

6:12 Because the Lord wants us to use our bodies in ways that please him, we must avoid all sexually immoral acts.

7:1 Married people should not deprive their spouses of sexual relations, except under special conditions.

7:8 It is all right to get married, but it is wrong to get divorced. However, you should not force an unbelieving spouse to keep living with you.

7:17 In general, each person should remain in the status that he had before he became a believer.

7:25 It is not sinful to get married, but married people will have a lot of problems.

7:29 We believers should not devote our time to the affairs of this life.

7:32 It is better to remain unmarried because married people are more concerned about pleasing their spouses than about how to please the Lord.

7:36 It is better for a man to decide that his daughter should remain unmarried than that she should get married, but either decision is all right.

7:39 Women whose husbands have died are free to get remarried, but only to believers. However, they will probably be happier if they do not marry again.

8:1 We should not be proud about knowing the truth about idols.

8:4 There are many idols that people think are gods, but there is only one true God.

8:7 Do not eat meat offered to idols if that would encourage other believers to eat that food contrary to their conscience.

9:1 As your apostle I am free to do anything that God allows me to do.

9:3 Barnabas and I have the same right to receive financial support that the other apostles have.

9:8 God’s servants have always had the right to receive financial help from others, but we have not insisted on that right because we want to preach the gospel without charge.

9:19 I have adopted the code of conduct of whatever group I have been among, in order to bring more people to Christ.

10:1 Our Jewish ancestors all experienced God’s power, but almost all of them died in the desert because they sinned against him.

10:6 What happened to our Jewish ancestors was a warning of what will happen to us if we give in to temptation.

10:14 God will punish us if we participate in demon worship by eating food sacrificed to demons when we eat the Lord’s Supper.

10:23 It is all right to eat food offered to idols, but we should not do so if it would offend those who think that it is wrong.

11:2 Women should wear a hair covering while praying or prophesying in a service, but men should not do so.

11:17 When you gather to eat the Lord’s Supper, you act selfishly. I cannot praise you for that.

11:23 The Lord gave us instructions about the significance of the Lord’s Supper.

11:27 God punishes those who eat the Lord’s Supper in a way that does not express the unity of his people.

12:1 It is only God’s Spirit who enables people to say that Jesus is Lord.

12:4 God’s Spirit gives believers special abilities as he desires.

12:12 A congregation needs all the abilities that God’s Spirit gives to its members, but you should especially desire the ones that help others the most.

13:1 We should use the abilities that God’s Spirit has given us in ways that show that we love others.

14:1 Speaking messages that come directly from God will help believers much more than speaking messages in unknown languages.

14:26 Believers should all be prepared to participate in an orderly way during worship services.

15:1 I was not worthy to become an apostle, but the Lord Jesus committed to me the message about his death and resurrection.

15:12 Christ has truly come back to life, and he will some day raise all believers.

15:35 In heaven we will have glorious indestructible bodies.

16:1 You should set aside funds each week for the offering to be sent to believers in Jerusalem.

16:5 I plan to spend some time with you. Treat Timothy respectfully when he arrives. Apollos plans to visit you later.

16:13 I give you my final instructions, greetings from others, and my final blessings.
