1 Corinthians 4:18-21
New International Version
18 Some of you have become arrogant,(A) as if I were not coming to you.(B) 19 But I will come to you very soon,(C) if the Lord is willing,(D) and then I will find out not only how these arrogant people are talking, but what power they have. 20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of(E) talk but of power.(F) 21 What do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a rod of discipline,(G) or shall I come in love and with a gentle spirit?
