4 Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.
God gives us patience..
encourages us as we wait..
helps us live in harmony with each other..
5 May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.
The Church is a place to gather in unity..
a place to worship..
a place of acceptance..
6 Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Followers of Jesus are called to accept others so that God will be given glory..
7 Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.
The Bible, The Father, The Church, and a personal message to each of us Followers from Romans 15: 4-7.
