Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.
Now some are puffed up , as though I would not come to you.
But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will , and will know , not the speech of them which are puffed up , but the power.
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
What will ye ? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
