2 [a]Unto the Church of God, which is at Corinth, to them that are [b]sanctified in [c]Christ Jesus, Saints by [d]calling, with all that [e]call on the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ in every place, both their Lord, and ours:
1 Corinthians 1:2It is a Church of God, although it hath great faults in it, so that it obey them which admonish it.
1 Corinthians 1:2The father sanctifieth us, that is to say, separateth us from the wicked, in giving us to his Son, that he may be in us, and we in him.
1 Corinthians 1:2Whom God of his gracious goodness and mere love hath separated for himself: or whom God hath called to holiness: the first of these two expositions showeth from whence our sanctification cometh, and the second showeth to what end it tendeth.
1 Corinthians 1:2He is said properly to call on God, who crieth unto the Lord when he is in danger, and craveth help at his hands: and by the figure Synecdoche it is taken for all the service of God: and therefore to call upon Christ’s Name, is to acknowledge and take him for very God.
