5 Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God,
19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
2 I ask that when I am present I need not be bold with the confidence with which I propose to be courageous against some, who regard us as if we walked according to the flesh.
7 You are looking at things as they are outwardly . If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ's, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ's, so also are we.
11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when absent, such persons we are also in deed when present.
5 For I consider myself not in the least inferior to the most eminent apostles.
6 For if I do wish to boast I will not be foolish, for I will be speaking the truth; but I refrain from this, so that no one will credit me with more than he sees in me or hears from me.
