You are witnesses 1 of these things.
and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.
We are fools for Christ, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, we are dishonored!
So do not be afraid; 1 you are more valuable than many sparrows.
“So listen to the parable of the sower:
Be careful! I have told you everything ahead of time.
You also are among them, 1 called to belong to Jesus Christ. 2
But you yourselves wrong and cheat, and you do this to your brothers and sisters! 1
But you did not learn about Christ like this,
For now we are alive again, 1 if you stand firm in the Lord.
But you, brothers and sisters, 1 do not grow weary in doing what is right.
But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher and you are all brothers.
I sent you to reap what you did not work for; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”
In a little while 1 the world will not see me any longer, but you will see me; because I live, you will live too.
You will know at that time 1 that I am in my Father and you are in me and I am in you.
“You stubborn 1 people, with uncircumcised 2 hearts and ears! 3 You are always resisting the Holy Spirit, like your ancestors 4 did!
So then, be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. 1
Jesus 1 said, “Even after all this, are you still so foolish?
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Fill up then the measure of your ancestors!
