We who are strong

May 20, 2013

With this title you are probably thinking of weight lifter, or a fighter of some sort, well that is not the case here. I am talking about the ones who are strong spiritually, the ones who have accepted Jesus Christ and who walk with Him daily. We need to be there for the week the ones who are babies in Christ and are just learning about what they need to do to be a strong Christen. We are to lead others to Christ and then teach them to do the same. Praise be to God that he brought the plane of salvation to the Gentiles also. Before Christ you had to be Jewish to be one of God’s chosen people but through His son Jesus we are now also His through adoption. So remember when people persecute you and say insulting things to you that just as Christ sill loved and treated these people with respect we are to do the same. Jesus says it better in Romans 15.

Romans 15:1-13

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.” For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God’s truth, so that the promises made to the patriarchs might be confirmed and, moreover, that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written: “Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing the praises of your name.” 10 Again, it says, “Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.” 11 And again, “Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles; let all the peoples extol him.” 12 And again, Isaiah says, “The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; in him the Gentiles will hope.” 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
