Endurance and Encouragement: Romans 15:5

Romans 15:5

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,

Romans 15:5 (NIV)

God is a source of endurance and encouragement. He will help us to keep going, following His path for us. God is patient and forgiving. He lifts us with encouragement and with endurance to keep moving forward. Paul is encouraging the church in Rome to get along; live in harmony. To act like Jesus did, glorifying God, showing patience, and compassion to others. With God’s endurance and encouragement, we can work together, with unity.

Do you look to God for endurance and encouragement? Are you patient, compassionate, and forgiving to others like Jesus?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for encouraging us, forgiving us, and giving us the endurance to move forward. Teach us to be patient, forgiving, and compassionate like Jesus was. Encourage us to be tolerant and work together in unity. Like the white rhododendron petals are gathered together around the flower center, let us gather together in love, centered on Jesus. Amen

  1. In our own strength we cannot love like Him but when we surrender ourselves allowing God to work in us we grow to love more like Christ did and live in unity. The analogy of the flower petals gathered around the centre as a picture we should follow and be centered around Christ is so beautiful.
    Blessings to you Jeanne πŸ’™
