2 Corinthians 12:15

15 a  I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If b  I love you more, am I to be loved less?

Philippians 2:30

30for he nearly died c  for the work of Christ, risking his life d  to complete what was lacking in your service to me.

1 Thessalonians 2:8-9

8So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God e  but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.

9For you remember, brothers f  our labor and toil: we g  worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, while we proclaimed to you the gospel of God.
