MUTUAL ACCEPTANCE

Romans 14:1-16

Dear Father, foundation of all our lives,

 Make me compassionate and generous toward my brothers and sisters in Christ. Let us welcome each other, and not dispute over opinions. May I never pass judgment on a brother or sister, for you have welcomed them. They are your servants. It is before you that they stand or fall. And they will be upheld, for you are able to make them stand.

Let us be fully convinced in our own minds about honoring certain days, or about eating certain foods. Whether we honor a day or eat a food, or whether we abstain, may we do it (or not do it) in honor of you.

Thank you that none of us lives to self, and none dies to self.
Whether we live or die, we are yours! Thank you that Christ died to this end: that he might be Lord both of those who have died and of us who live. We know from what Jesus said: that all your saints are alive to you.

In the name of Jesus, instill consideration for each other into all of us. Amen.

This just stuck a chord in me when I read it. Enjoy, Kristina

  1. Whewee! Whether we live or die, we are Yours! Read it kajillions of times but that just got me. Great encouragement for those of us who trudge through the desert sand of this life, ever pressing on to the City whose Builder and Architect is God!

    Thanks for sharing, Kris!
