2 Corinthians 12:15
And as for me, most gladly will I spend all I have and be utterly spent for your salvation.
2 Corinthians 13:9
and it is a joy to us when we are powerless, but you are strong. This we also pray for--the perfecting of your characters.
But even the sacrifice of my life I count as nothing, if only I may perfect my earthly course, and be faithful to the duty which the Lord Jesus has entrusted to me of proclaiming, as of supreme importance, the Good News of God's grace.
1 Corinthians 4:10
We, for Christ's sake, are labeled as "foolish"; you, as Christians, are men of shrewd intelligence. We are mere weaklings: you are strong. You are in high repute: we are outcasts.
Nay, even if my life is to be poured as a libation upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I rejoice, and I congratulate you all.
1 John 3:16
We know what love is--through Christ's having laid down His life on our behalf; and in the same way we ought to lay down our lives for our brother men.
