I give thanks to God always for you because of the grace of God which was given to you in Christ Jesus, that in every way you were enriched in Him with all speech and all knowledge-so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

- 1 Corinthians 4:9
