v1. Love. God’s love overpowers the sinful adulterous “love”.
v3. (2 Cor 1:8-9) If we try to do things to add to our salvation, then we could get a little credit. (Jn 15:5) Why? So God can be given the credit (glory) for carrying us through our problems and out of them.
v4. Speaks of the captivity, but also the present time.
