Jesus is our example of (love for the church).

1) Acts 20:28
2) Ephesians 5: 25

Paul loved the church.

1) Phil.1:7
2) 2 Cor. 6:11
3) 2 Cor. 12:15

Paul’s love goes even deeper. [See 2:1] The word struggle is our word (agony).

II. THE FOCUS OF THE BURDEN

 

For us to grow in our faith, there must be two insights we have to acknowledge: an (increased

1. They will be (strong in heart). (v.2a)
2. They will be (united in love). (v.2b) See Ephesians 4:16
3. They will be (settled in their understanding). (v.2c)
4. They will not be (deluded). (v.4)
5. They will grow in their (walk in Christ). (6-7)
