1 Corinthians 16
Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the
churches of Galatia, even so do ye.||
Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store,
as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.||
And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I
send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.||
And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.||
Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do
pass through Macedonia.||
And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may
bring me on my journey whithersoever I go.||
For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with
you, if the Lord permit.||
But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.||
For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many
Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he
worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do.||
Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he
may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren.||
As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you
with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he
will come when he shall have convenient time.||
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.||
Let all your things be done with charity.||
(16:14) "Let all your things be done with charity."|
Do all things with love.
I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the
firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the
ministry of the saints,)
That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with
us, and laboureth.||
I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that
which was lacking on your part they have supplied.||
For they have refreshed my spirit and your's: therefore acknowledge ye
them that are such.||
The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in
the Lord, with the church that is in their house.||
All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.||
The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand.||
"If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema."
In this verse Paul curses those who don't love Jesus and
says that they are to be "anathema" (damned).
How should we treat our enemies?
If any man love not
the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
