For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you. 1 Corinthians 1:11

The word “for” is used as a connector to the previous verse and to then build upon that thought. In verse 10 we read –

“Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

Based on this, “For it has been declared” is now stated.… Read the rest

Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Corinthians 1:10

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9

The word “faithful” here is emphatic. In the Greek it is the first word of the sentence. A direct translation would say, “Faithful God by whom you were called…” What God speaks, He will perform.… Read the rest

…who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:8

This finishes up the long thought which began in verse 4. Since then, Paul:

1) Thanked God for His grace given to them by Christ Jesus
2) This grace would enrich them in everything; by all utterance and knowledge
3) Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in them
4) So that they would lack no gift as they awaited the revelation of Christ

And it is He, Jesus Christ, “who will also confirm you to the end.” This is another of the multitude of verses concerning “eternal salvation.” Despite our own weaknesses, we shall be confirmed to the end.… Read the rest

This verse is still continuing on with the same basic thought that Paul has been making for the past three verses. The grace of God was given to the Corinthians by Christ Jesus.… Read the rest
