Paul Warns his Spiritual Children

14I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. 15For though you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have you not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. 16Why I beseech you, be you followers of me. 17For this cause have I sent to 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. 18Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you. 19But 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. 20For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. 21What will you? shall I come to you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
