5 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. – Romans 15:5-7 ESV
God is a God of endurance and encouragement. He provides what we need to live in harmony with one another; to live in harmony with Christ’s mission; and to welcome one another. The goal is that God, our Father will be glorified.
May our fellowship with the body of Christ be characterized by harmony and a welcoming environment. The power to achieve this comes from the endurance and encouragement given to us by our Heavenly Father. May God be glorified by the harmony expressed in our fellowship.
Lord we ask for your encouragement and endurance to live in harmony so that you may be glorified.
