The Example of Christ

Romans 15

1 We a then who are strong ought to bear with the 1 scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 b Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to 2 edification. 3 c For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, d "The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me." 3 4 For e whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the 4 patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 5 f Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, 6 that you may g with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore h receive one another, just i as Christ also received 5 us, to the glory of God.
