1 Thessalonians 2:6 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
2:6 Nor from others - Who would have honoured us more, if we had been burdensome - That is, taken state upon ourselves.
"Your approval means nothing to me,
No wonder you can't believe! For you gladly honor each other, but you don't care about the honor that comes from the one who alone is God.
1 Corinthians 9:1
Am I not as free as anyone else? Am I not an apostle? Haven't I seen Jesus our Lord with my own eyes? Isn't it because of my work that you belong to the Lord?
1 Corinthians 9:4
Don't we have the right to live in your homes and share your meals?
2 Corinthians 4:5
You see, we don't go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus' sake.
That is why I am boldly asking a favor of you. I could demand it in the name of Christ because it is the right thing for you to do.
