1 Corinthians 1:4-7
"I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus. For in union with Christ you have become rich in all things, including all speech and all knowledge. The message about the Christ has become so firmly established in you that you have not failed to receive a single blessing, as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed�."
