1 Corinthians 16:4-12 (Wednesday)

4

But if it is fitting that I go also, they will go with me.

5

Now I will come to you when I pass through Macedonia (for I am passing through Macedonia).

6

And it may be that I will remain, or even spend the winter with you, that you may send me on my journey, wherever I go.

7

For I do not wish to see you now on the way; but I hope to stay a while with you, if the Lord permits.

8

But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost.

9

For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

10

And if Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do.

11

Therefore let no one despise him. But send him on his journey in peace, that he may come to me; for I am waiting for him with the brethren.

12

Now concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brethren, but he was quite unwilling to come at this time; however, he will come when he has a convenient time.

1

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints who are in all Achaia:

2

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,

4

who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

5

For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.

6

Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

7

And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation.
